Perrygrove Railway

Unique child friendly wedding venue in the Forest of Dean.

Weddings and Conferences in or near Coleford


Our narrow gauge steam engines plod up and down our line giving rides to excited children and reminiscent grandparents alike. The trains are fully enclosed and seat up to 100 people per train whatever the weather. What better way to transport your guests along with you on your wedding journey.

With two very different, but equally unique, reception locations at Perrygrove, we can cater for parties large and small. For smaller, more intimate receptions we use our carriage shed which is based at the main station, Perrygrove. In here we can comfortably accommodate up to 60 for a formal sit down meal. If your wedding is for 60 or more people, then Rookwood is for you. Situated a short distance along the line from Perrygrove, Rookwood is completely private to you and your guests for the entire day. It‘s the perfect location for a marquee wedding, with ample space for up to 200 guests.

Because we understand that your wedding is the most important day of your life, the owners of Perrygrove will liaise directly with you and your partner to ensure the day of your dreams – we got married here ourselves so we know how to do it and we’ll help you every step of the way!
