  • We have visited Riverstown Folk Park lots of times when in the area and really love it. The café is fab, lovely food and lovely staff. Our favourite time to go is Christmas, they put on a really great...  more »

  • Luckily we were staying in Riverton so it was only a walk, not a drive. We arrived after 11am and there appeared to be nobody at the gate, although we could see people walking around mowing lawns etc....  more »

  • Rather disappointing, quite limited displays and overall a rundown feel to the place
  • Very cheap entry fee so good value for what you get. Not organised very well, a lot of items gave no information as to what they are, and quite a few things had fallen over behind glass but nobody had picked them up. The old farmhouse is the best of the exhibits and the information about the history of switchboards worth reading also. Definitely worth popping in if you are in the area, spend an hour and move on. Staff friendly.
  • Not well maintained and staff don't want to be there
  • Loved Santa and panto show don't miss next year.
  • Is very small. The devices without a roof weather very. At times poorly maintained. But very nice. There is also a children's play area. Unfortunately, the restaurant had closed.
