  • This is a fun day out for all ages. We've been twice and enjoyed the exhibits and riding in vintage carriages pulled by steam locomotives. There is a tea room and often real ale.
  • Enjoyable but small railway. Best time to visit is when they have special events on. Volunteers are passionate and knolegeable. Micro bar has a FANTASTIC range or LOCALLY sourced beers and ciders worth a visit on its own
  • A lovely little museum, that clearly has a hardworking and dedicated group of volunteers. It is however extreemly small and I would not recommend for children (at least under 10s) as there really is not alot for them to do or see. Even for adults I would estimate an hour to an hour and a half is really the max time it occupies.
  • Lovely place to visit. One cost and you can ride the steam training as many times as you want. Was a bit small though, a good couple of hours tops.
  • If the bar is open, great selection of beer. Small railway with limited track but can ride as many times as you like with a selection of different carriages to choose from.
