Railworld Wildlife Haven


Oundle Road,

Also at this Venue


The Railworld Wildlife Haven is testament to what can be achieved when volunteers, companies, groups and individuals work together for a common goal – Encouraging Environmental Awareness. Rev Richard Paten our founder chair and life long volunteer – brought the land over 30 years ago and we have raised funds to create what we have today.... We have never had any core funding, but we have won six major UK Environmental Awards and one Worldwide Award from Caterpillar.

We are located alongside Peterborough Nene Valley Station – There is ample car parking and we are easily accessible, 15 minutes walk from Peterborough’s main railway station.

Railworld has 2,000 sqft of model railway, with hands-on exhibits. We have the unique hover train RTV 31.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics.
