  • This is a really nice place, staff are friendly. Great for about a couple of hours. The train ride takes between 40 - 50 minutes with a steam train pulling the coaches. There's a small museum there with headphones to listen to audio about the different trains etc. they have. It's very family friendly inside and there's disabled spaces and parent/child parking. There's a small cafe and gift shop and if you're looking for something more substantial to eat you're 5 minutes from the Silverlink Retail Park.
  • My boy has been fascinated by all things transportation since forever so this museum is a very firm favourite and now as a teenager he is as happy as he ever was sitting on the platform waiting n watching the beautifully restored trains coming and going! However for me it is the fantastic garden outside the reception that deserves the kudos! It is teaming with butterflies n bees n all kinds of wildlife, it not only looks just gorgeous but definitely adds a cheerful welcome to visitors - humans & pollinators alike! x
