I took a disabled person with me today and was really touched by the friendliness and the way the staff went to make us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and my friend and I left after 2 train rides and a full meal in the café wanting to visit again. For families the guard of the train took... More

I was given a full day driving experience and it was an excellent day out. The driver and fireman were very friendly and involved me in all the different tasks such as starting the fire, oiling and driving. The volunteers I meet that day were all very friendly and the catering was very nice….. all in all… great. I can... More

We took our grandchildren to this railway and we all really enjoyed the experience. The staff were all delightful, the lady in the tea shop was lovely and all in all we had a very nice time. The ride on the train was only short but we knew that in advance but there were interactive displays and things that engaged... More

Really enjoyed this. It was the second times we have used them , when you get to the museum their is a smaller train the children can ride on. The ticket you buy you can travel as many times as you like in one day. We went twice in once day. Good selection of cakes in cafe, staff very friendly... More

We've visited this attraction 3 times now and can't fault the staff for their enthusiasm and helpfulness. One of the carriages is wheelchair accessible, and the staff couldn't do enough to help us on and off at each stop ( our eldest is in a wheelchair) We visited with our 4 boys aged 9 and under who were utterly thrilled...

An excellent morning spent at this attraction. We took our grandchildren and they loved it. A short train ride followed by a trip museum tour and a second train trip on a miniature railway. Not too costly for a family. Recommended for a trip if it is raining

Short train trip with great museum. Great way to spend an hour but tickets are valid all day. Our kids loved the interactive museum. Great and enthusiastic staff.

I cannot believe how many people have reviewed the wrong attraction! This is the one at the Criccieth end of town (the other one is at the Cob end). I thought this railway was great fun and so did the kids, but at £18.50 for an hour it is a touch pricey. We arrived at about 10.15 and had no... More
