  • Nice family day out supporting a worthwhile charity. Volunteers very friendly and helpful. Food good but takes a while. BBQ catering was a bit disorganised though.
  • Lovely to see it in steam and working as it was intended. Very educational. Helpful volunteers.
  • Amazing world heritage site with the oldest fully working beam engines in the world
  • Very informative guided tour of the engine house, will be of interest to anyone who wants to know how early steam engines work. Nice cafe with a good range of light lunches and cakes. Good place to take a look at the Kennet and Avon canal
  • Great out doors viewing nice inside
