Not bad this place. Few things to do and worth a visit. The spinning coin thing is amazing. Loads of old carriages and cars to look at. When I visited they has steam engines running. This was good to see these looked after and running. Worth a visit if you are passing.

We used the Discovery centre for my youngest daughters wedding. The staff were very friendly and efficient leading up to the day and on the day were absolutely brilliant. The room was prepared well, everything was planned out and efficiently carried out. The staff were well organised and kept us informed the whole time we were there. Big thank you... More
