  • Easy to navigate. Parking recommended across the road from the train station which has Pay by phone facilities. Friendly staff. Unfortunately several of the attractions were closed, and Thomas was not around either. Weather was cold but that did not affect looking around. Could definitely benefit from opening more trains and carriages to the public. Cafe a real let down. Ended up using the friendly pub across from the station.
  • Fab service. Staff very friendly, and great value for money. The parking is a bit out of the way but that is a problem with no resolution. Other than that, a brilliant day out, and will recommend to everyone. Will definitely visit again.
  • Took my son to the Christmas Thomas The Tank Engine event and I was very impressed. However I do wish it was a little less rushed and it felt a little easier to take photos with Thomas. The fact you could ride the other train as many times as you liked was amazing and the train which was set up with several Thomas activities was lovely, even a bit tight for space with more than a few people in. The food was extremely basic but was nice enough. The staff were incredibly friendly and approachable. We did however get lost following our sat nav with the postcode given and we would have loved to have been made more aware there was a very long walk from the entrance to Thomas. But overall fairly impressed.
  • Day out with Thomas and Friends just before Christmas was a very special treat for my children. We all really enjoyed it.
  • Good museum however it could do with more reading, diesel/electric locos, other things etc.
