It has been a year or two since our last visit and our grandson enjoyed his previous visits so much, he wanted to come back for a birthday treat. It was a help that the sun was shining so that we could walk about in some comfort. As usual we enjoyed the ride on the old trams - it's a... More

Once inside you could ride on trams all day if that is what you like doing. There are also walks and picnic areas, teashops and museum areas to look at, so plenty to do for the whole family. If you have mobility issues it is quite difficult to get in and out of the trams, although one of them is... More

There really is little to do beyond the tram rides which are short. Better to go to Blackpool. The tea room was OK but I made a wrong choice of Plaice Goujons which were dry, breadcrumbed and not worth the £6.50. They came with two doorsteps of bread. Third rate. Luckily it was a dry day for this visit. Toilets... More

Drove here on a recommendation. Have to say it was a great recommendation. We were 4 adults 1 child and 2 dogs. They are very accommodating of dogs which is great. Our son and myself loved the trams. They had so many I was amazed. All the other stuff around it is good too. Walk in the parkland with sculptures,... More

Not to be missed if you're in the vicinity with period reconstructed buildings, children's activities and unlimited tram rides on vehicles from various systems around the country. The ticket entitles you to free admission for a year. My visit was spoiled by torrential rain and as a result we did not stay as long as I would have liked but... More

The trip back in time was lovely, seeing the trams etc but the ticket office could do with being closer to the pub area, I say this because I took my son who is in a wheelchair and elderly gran with walking frame and even though they stated a accessible route was available, it felt like we walked out the...

As I'm of an age that used to use a tram this really took me back in time, what a fab day out. The weather was very good which helps but with such a lot to see and do we had a great time. Only £13 entry and all tram rides are free, there were 5 trams in action on... More

Brilliant value for money, being able to use the ticket for the next 12 months. Superb trams which the kids love travelling on. Great walk in the woods and great exhibitions.
