  • Fantastic day out! Kids & I thoroughly enjoyed it. As well as the steam train experience, lots to do & see at the station for kids & adults. Indoor and outdoor play area, birds of prey centre (discounted entry with rail ticket) plus free shows throughout the day. Restaurant, cafe, ice-cream hut and good clean facilities. Definitely recommend!
  • I loved it! The staff are so good! They're helpful and there uniforms are really fitting for the steam train service they provided. The train coaches were clean, the ride was cool and again the staff are great. It short, sweet and defo felt like it was something id do again.
