  • Lovely museum of steam, great day out, free entry if you buy a day return ( Freedom of the line) ticket on the railway. Well worth going. Nice people too.
  • Some very nice steam locos inside and you can get up close and personal with the engines
  • Excellent venue, friendly staff and loads of information and trains to look at. It is a must visit if you are traveling on the Severn Valley Railway.
  • Modern, spacious and air conditioned museum dedicated to steam railway history. Very friendly staff and excellent views of the nearby railway.
  • It brought back many good memories of yesteryear but also very enlightening.
