For a great day out , this is definitely recommend for all ages , in saying that its possibly not to good for those who have difficulty walking.

Apart from being a great little fishing village , there is loads to do here from Pecorama which features beautiful landscaped grounds,  extensive 7 and a quarter inch gauge track , landscaped gardens, aviaries , exotic birds, a leisure trail and a mini golf ,A great in door model Railway Exhibition.

There is a wonderful old Pullman carriage where you can take Tea, coffee,and light Meals

Not forgetting the caves , take in the 2000years of history of these quarry caves, and view the massive chambers and vaulted ceilings ,the quarry was first worked in Roman times , and has supplied the stone for twenty four cathedrals any many more famous buildings like Windsor Castle, Tower of London,Hampton Court Palace.

The  stone at Beer was in much Demand by the masons, as when  quarried it is perfect for fine detail carvings,but hardens on exposure to the air, turning a beautiful creamy white colour.
