  • Perfect place for all rail fans. Also good for families with children. Best before on the Internet, check out the special events. With steam trains, lots of show rides and smaller trips in the surrounding area. Everything beautifully organized and relatively inexpensive for the island also.

  • Had a great day today ... our family was die to visit waddesden manor however the weather was bad with Storm Brian hitting high winds leaving our venue closed. However on the way back home we saw the railway centre was near. We ended up visiting the site. WELL WE'LL all I can say is wonderful, Lovely well kept station and although the venue had a private function on, this did not stop the kindness of the staff and volunteer drivers showing us around . Including a short ride on the little engine. Thank you to all and I will be joining membership for our family.
  • Superb working Railway Museum with many attractions including full size steam train rides and also miniature railway rides. There is so much to see there that I needed several hours to get round everything including the actual museum part that I found fascinating. Hot & cold food and refreshments normally available and plenty of toilets etc and a well stocked gift shop.
  • We cycled past here and decided to call in for an hour or two and were amazed how much there was to see. We didn't even get to the museum so we'll have to go again sometime. I particularly liked the carriages where they used to sort the mail. Very helpful and informative staff.
  • Great day out with young children. We've been there for the Thomas event with steam powered Thomas and Percy, all the kids were very happy and excited. Lots of trains to see, nice museum full of old trains and things. Very cute miniature trains, which offer rides. Nice cafe with decent homemade food on-site (sandwiches were filled very generously). You can bring your own food, there are picnic tables.
  • Not bad for the entrance fee and the fact it's run by volunteers makes it even better. One poor thing when they stopped running the trains for lunch with no warning leaving a few families with upset kids after queuing for the train for 10 minutes. The steam train is great and gives a good amount of time... it's free and you can go as many times as you want. The miniature railway is also great, much longer than expected and only £1 an adult. Really the biggest disappointment was the cafe. Pretty dear for some really manky food. Bring a picnic.
