  • This is a great little railway, took the grandchildren and they loved their day out. Loads to see on the route, and end off with a hot chocolate and something to eat in the cafe  more »

  • Lovely railway. Obviously well run. Neat and tidy - even in the engine shed! Very pleasant ride in lovely countryside.
  • Great Easter day out! Egg trail for the kids and a pop up pub for the adults. The steam trains are great too. Will definitely go back.
  • Wet Easter Monday at Tanfield, but thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Lovely friendly staff, especially the guys in the engine sheds. Two very knowledgeable youngsters. Love to visit again on a warmer day!
  • A wonderful day out, working steam trains, a lovely ride. Sheds and work shops, with steam trains and other historical artefacts. Picnic areas, cafe, train stations and woodland walks to the oldest railway bridge in the world. A pleasant day out. However I would suggest you pick a fine day and one that isn't too cold. Best enjoyed on a mild day or warmish day to make full use of all the area has to offer
  • Fantastic day out. Very helpful and welcoming staff. Great value for money
