  • Mostly run by volunteers who were friendly. Wasn't my thing as there was not much variety. There are 3 small gauge trains to take a trip on a carousel, pleasant gardens and a little park for the kids....  more »

  • Really good place to go with family and children. Has lots of rides including a carousel and 3 miniature steam lines you can ride on. Gardens are lovely and there is an engine shed to look around as well. Only negative here was once inside staff were unfriendly and had the air they didn't want you there or to be there, not going out of their way to help you and very blunt. Not same for all staff but most, other than that the place is lovely but this did ruin our experience slightly
  • Been here 3 years now to see Santa, Fingers crossed we can make it another year with our 9 year old son. Every one is so kind it is a nice experience. PS tea shop is excellent.
  • Nice friendly museum. Steam Trains. Has a Dad's Army Exhibition which was good. Does train rides on selected days check website.
  • Nice museum combining steam trains, gallopers ride and beautiful gardens. Santa event is great for young children. Cafe has superb homemade cakes.
  • Gardens are breathtaking, unusual mix of steam and horticulture. I love the old arcade machines. There was a steampunk day on one of our visits, that was excellent.
