This is an excellent little railway if you don't mind a journey through the housing estates of Leighton Buzzard. Well maintained trains with very welcoming staff and an interesting little railway museum at the other end. It is expensive for a journey but then you are paying to maintain a little rail history!

theres no view on the journey & I don't think it will hold much interest for older kids either. The cafés at either end are lovely, but other than that theres nothing to see when you get off the train before the return trip.

There are not many steam railways around these days, this is a great day out and fun (although you do have to be a train enthusiast) It is also great for wheel chair access

This is a narrow gauge railway so small trains and carriages. The line is not that long but is a nice little trip for small children with a small cafe at the end which you can visit while the train changes round for the return or you can visit the yard or stay longer and catch a later train back...

We had a very enjoyable day on our visit the 30th December. Although the actual Railway journey lasted only 30 minutes ( restricted running at this time of the year ), the staff there made us feel so much at home we felt we were amongst friends rather than strangers. The snacks/meals served up were faultless and in a very... More

This magical Santa trip is an appalling way to make money £30 of mine!!!! You cannot preach charity run when you charge customers and offer such a poor service. Here's the real experience Park your car in the local park go to the canteen for 1 inch of punch in a plastic cup with no idea what is in it... More

My grandson loved the train ride,I myself was very disappointed as the train did not go very far. We waited about 10 to see Santa and I agree the Grotto was not very good, but Santa himself was fine... More

Visited this attraction again this year, our 5th year in a row. Best Santa ever this year. I hadn't realised until recently that everyone who works on this railway is a volunteer and it's run on a not for profit basis as a charity. The train is full this time of year and gets more popular each year, so if... More
