    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 »

  • Absolutely wonderful experience! Fascinating insight into the social and industrial history of Elsecar and surrounding areas. Very informative and staff in visitor centre were superb. Great gift shop in the centre too with some lovely gift ideas. Well worth a visit and I highly recommend to everyone.
  • Why did I never know about this place before? A proper little hidden gem. Learn some history of the area, let the kids play in the more than ample indoor play area, visit the many "not on the high street" kind of shops and the large (and fantastically stocked) emporium. And (very rare in this day and age) parking is free. Probably best to visit when the weather is nice but is still worthy of a visit when it isn't. Well worth a visit
  • Excellent footplate experience for my father in law. The volunteers where fantastic friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable and couldn't do enough. Would highly recommend it.
  • Excellent all round. something for everyone. If you get the sunshine it completes a great day out.
  • Nice place but for some reason it's always dead on its feet .... I don't know how they keep going ..... but worth a look around.
