  • What a wonderful little gem of a place! Beautifully maintained by the wonderful volunteers. I was a bit sceptical before going and didn't thing they'd be enough to keep the kids entertained but there was plenty to see and do and we all enjoyed our visit! To all the staff, keep up the wonderful work you do! 👍🏼
  • We went on a Steam day when classic cars where on display. It's a lovely place to visit if you are in to steam pumps and appreciate old Victorian buildings. There is also a beautiful build underground water reservoir.
  • Amazing place. A very enjoyable visit. To see the Pump working was a rare treat nowadays. The history and heritage just goes to prove that with inspiration and hard work anything is achieve able. Car park attendant was pleasent and smiling all day. A lovely sunny day when we visited...made the experience more nicer. A must for enthusiasts who enjoy anything to do with Nottingham....The model boats on the lake were so detailed and the people friendly. They were eager to talk about their little water crafts with knowledge and enthusiasm 😊 a very memorable day out.
  • It's an amazing place to visit. All credit to the volunteers hard work the quality of preservation has to be admired . Its good to see more and more events being added to the calendar each year. As a venue it's very comfortable not to big not too small.
  • Particularly for someone interested in engineering, this is a palace dedicated to steam. The architecture, tiling, glass and wrought iron are all spectacular without the two magnificent pumping beam engines. Even the cooling water pond is a work of art. The boiler house still houses all the boilers and the tour of the underground storage reservoir is well worth doing.
