  • I'm not really a train enthusiast, but this place is great! £10 for an all day ticket, £30 for the year (adult price), £26 family ticket, £6 kids, £8 seniors. The staff, mostly in period costume, know what they're talking about and are friendly and helpful. The food from the various canteens, tea rooms and cafe is good. There's some lovely walks in the area alongside the track, plus riding the steam train is a joy.
  • Had a brilliant time on Halloween ghost Train yesterday, so much attention to detail and reasonably priced, plenty of free of charge activities for the children and snacks and drinks very reasonably priced Great afternoons entertainment
  • Enjoyed our second visit as much as our first. Friendly and helpful. Footpaths along side the track makes it good place to take photos and for walks between stations. Cafés serves great basic food and cakes at great prices. Lots to see. Great little railwsy.
  • Great train ride on lovely steam engine, with good tea and cake. Thank you
  • Tanfield is an amazing experience and well maintained by volunteers. We love the events they put in like Teddy bear picnics and of course the Christmas train!
