A small group of pupils from Parkside school Norwich enjoyed an afternoon on and off the trains and exploring the goods yard! The staff were so helpful and envolved the pupils with moving the train around. Rob spoke to them on exactly the right level and gave them a memorable experience! All for a reasonable price. Thanks so much we... More

This was the highlight of our holiday. Wonderful enthusiastic staff and a great wee museum with train rides to make it the best visit ever. I found the museum really interesting and was especially impressed to learn the little trains were made by a very talented member of staff. My two year loved pretending to be a train driver and...

We visited WHR this Sunday and to be honest we weren't expecting allot. However we were pleasantly surprised. Firstly we appreciated that the actual Train journey only takes about 10 mins in total, but bearing in mind We have 2 Children under the age of 6yrs this to us was perfect. After our short Train journey, We stopped off at... More

Looked after my grandson (2 1/2 years) for a week for their mum and dad in early September. He is a railway fan and I promised to take him on our steam railways. The Heritage WHR was recommended and it proved to be ideal for a 2-3year old. Its a short ride, the staff interact well with the children, letting... More

A best way to see the scenery. A special treat for train-lovers. A bit expensive but worth it. Don't miss it!

We try to visit Wales at least once a year, and always make an effort to visit the WHHR. Cheerful staff, lovely cafe,clean toilets,and we'll stocked shop. Not to forget the enjoyable train ride to the museum and workshops.

Brilliant morning. Everyone very friendly, my little boy loved it and we will be travelling back (2hours by hour) just to go to their Santa experience in December. Excellent value for money as you can go on again free of charge later in the day.

Short line but a brilliant historical facility at Gelert's farm. Great for children and I wanted a bit more time to read all of the information in the shed.
