This is a one room small museum. Staff lovely, was very reasonable price. £6 for family but wasn't very big. What was there was interesting, would love to see this expand and add more as setting of all the shops and was lovely.

This is a lovely small museum. As a grandmother it took me back and made me feel quite old! There are a couple of gift shops and a lovely tea room with gorgeous cakes. All set in the old station.
