  • First time visiting after living so close to it! Loved it. Was a wet rainy day but boys didn't mind. Great ride on the steam train, conductor very friendly and posed for photo with kids. Boys loved looking at the "toy" train but wanted to see it go lol. Great informative displays and lovely tour guide to help us round. Boys loved getting to go on/off and on again the old carriages. And had to stay for a while at the little pretend train with added dress up costumes! Will be back when boys older to appreciate the facts a bit more.
  • It's very reasonably priced and much, much larger than you expect, so there's lots to see. Younger fans of Thomas the tank engine will enjoy it, as do older fans who remember stream trains. Try to go when there's a special event on including the short train ride, so that there something to actually do rather than just see. Dressing up in Victorian clothes is surprisingly popular. The tea room was busy and the queue very slow moving.
