  • Great for train lovers. My son loved it. Felt the train ride was a little short though.
  • Visited the Santa Train this year with little ones. They enjoyed themselves. In previous years have visited the Bury train which is more expensive but , in my view, a better option.
  • Preston's local steam railway - not the biggest but well worth a visit.
  • My kids love this. The steam train ride is just the right length to hold their attention and it's cheap enough for us to go again and again. No card payments though, they need to look at that.
  • Had a great afternoon here with my 2 year old and his 4 year old friend. Staff really friendly and helpful. As many rides on the train as you want. Miniature railway again as many goes as you want although it is on a small track. Two play areas. Engines you can get on. Fantastic place.
