  • Had a great time; super footplate experience, driving and firing up the engine. Lovely staff who are all volunteers. Interesting courtyard of shops, cafe and things to see.  more »
  • Plenty to do and see, especially if you have time to look around the antique and furniture places. Places to eat and a relaxed atmosphere.  more »
  • We went here particularly for an antiques fair which in itself was very good. Additional parking areas had been opened for the event which was just as well as there were plenty of people attending (al...  more »

  • Lovely place to visit, the antique centre is wonderful, every time you go there, you find something different and the people in there are so friendly. Some of the prices are a little steep, but try bartering. The furniture shop is worth a visit too and a little shop has opened up selling glass decorations and other delights like stain glass stuff,an amazing shop, nip on and look for yourself. I will definitely be going back there.
  • I have been here for the food festival. Place was well organized, had plenty of street food stalls, a stage with performances and a tent with live cooking performances. It is a nice event location in otherwise quiet Elsecar. Would come again for another occasion. Especially that mason du bier has such a great selection of beers, ales and whatnot.
  • A bit twee, big antiques warehouse,steam railway at weekends,couple of cafes. Pretty collection of Victorian buildings previously at the heart of the industrial revolution; Southwark Bridge in London forged there, bit like a film set. Nice for a couple of hours,no entrance fee and free parking. Lovely countryside and walks nearby.
  • We visited kids play station and was brilliant. Team working there fabulous and my daughter was so happy with all opportunities to do whatever she wants to. Highly recommended.
  • Thanks to Earl Wentworth , Barnsley has a superb attraction : like a bit of Beamish. Antiques, ice cream , craft beer pub, cafes, handmade unique wooden furniture and many more independent craft shops. But then there's the working steam train sitting at the platform of the train station , you can take a trip down a short track and back. Have a look in the workshop at the end of the platform, the volunteers are very friendly. There's a huge shed hosting craft fairs, concerts etc and it has a large fully stocked bar.
