A miniature steam locomotive, tram and donkey will be gathered for the first time ever in Seaton on Friday 4th May at noon to mark the launch of a new initiative to encourage visitors to three of Lyme Bay’s top attractions.
The event at Seaton Tram Station celebrates the arrival of the Lyme Bay Passport, which includes free entry tickets and restaurant treats to Pecorama, Seaton Tramway and The Donkey Sanctuary, all located on the Lyme Bay coastline.
During the launch event, 25 Lyme Bay Passports will be handed out (one per family, on a first come first served basis), and visitors will have the rare chance to see a locomotive from the Beer Heights Light railway, a rescued donkey and an open top double decker tram in one place and find out more about visiting the attractions.
Dawn Vincent of The Donkey Sanctuary, says: “As three of Lyme Bay’s top attractions we are delighted to introduce the Lyme Bay Passport which will enable visitors explore to our three venues and save money during their visits.
We each have something unique to offer both local people and holiday makers.
See the unique fleet of miniature steam locomotives and stunning gardens at Pecorama, step back in time and ride a traditional tram along the Axe Estuary at Seaton Tramway and spend time in the beautiful grounds of the largest donkey sanctuary in the world.”
The Lyme Bay Passports are available from the three attractions and will be produced on purchase of a ticket at Pecorama and Seaton Tramway, or when spending over £5 in The Donkey Sanctuary’s shop. The initiative will run until Sunday 4th November.
Mark Ridgers of Pecorama says: “We really are pleased with this opportunity to work more closely with our neighbouring tourist attractions and believe all concerned, the Donkey Sanctuary, Seaton Tramway, Pecorama and all our respective visitors will benefit greatly from this initiative.”
