Activities include the” Egmont Express”, the Village train, which runs during weekends and holidays and offers a scenic tour of the Village. The Village Green is a great spot for family picnics and the “Villa Cafe” on site offers fine fare and coffee.
As well as the Pioneer Village, there are some other wonderful historical places in Stratford.
In 1925, the very first ‘talkie’ movies’ to be seen in the Southern Hemisphere were screened here, at the Taranaki Electricity Trust Kings Theatre.
The theatre has been restored and is now a venue for live theatre stage performances as well as regular screenings of popular and classic movies.
