  • Lots of old buses to see and many of them are open to go on board and look around. It's really lovely but not very big so will probably only fill a couple of hours maximum.
  • I went today with my two boys. It was lovely experience the staff were very helpful and went above beyond giving the children a background/ history of the buses. Would recommend it to anybody. The only thing I could say is it's a shame there were a few buses which were out of order that you couldn't go on but otherwise very good.
  • Great collection of trams and buses, in an apt location. Could be more interactive and updated to make it more interesting for younger kids.
  • My 3 year old son loves this place
  • Excellent range of buses from a 19th Century Horse Bus to recent additions that look as if they just came in off duty. The Cafe was basic but well managed.
