You are here:

South Yard

Experience the magic of the rails in our outdoor area, where you can enjoy a picnic in the sun, climb aboard the miniature railway or tackle our outdoor play area.

When it’s time for a break, South Yard is the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic in the sun or treat yourself to an ice cream.

Peek inside the carefully restored Borough Market signal box and imagine what it was like to work in the busiest signal box in the UK.

The whole family will be entertained by a ride on the miniature railway, operated by our expert volunteers.
