We visited on a hot Wednesday 24th of August with our two Grandchildren, bought our tickets for the 2 o/c train ride from the lovely new building and then went to the cafe. We had a very enjoyable lunch, friendly and helpful people. The boys decided to sit in the open carriage which was lovely chugging along with the breeze... More

I took my 2 1/2 year old son on the train today, he absolutely loved it, he was so excited seeing the engine coming out of the shed and approaching the platform. There were options of three different types of carriage, enclosed, semi open and open. The carriages are quite tight for space and not easily accessed for those with... More

We thought it would be good to try out this local attraction with family visits in mind. The booking staff were friendly and the guard was dressed very smartly as we stepped on board train 778 today. The train whistled intermittently to the delight of small fellow-travellers, and stopped every so often so that 2 volunteers could stop traffic with... More

Summer holiday fun, a trip on the much loved Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway. Pleased to see the new station building which is nearing completion and is already open to the public. The facilities are much improved. Wending our way through the outskirts of Leighton is quite relaxing, past Vandyke School and out through the fields is a joy. People... More

Three seniors travelled yesterday, the booking volunteer was very slow, 12 minutes to process 10 customers. The train was full and 4 people did not travel it needed a bit more organisation, a bit more communication between guard and booking staff and two on the bookings counter.Very helpful and pleasant ladies at the terminus had a cup of coffee and...

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your day. The delays in booking were caused by an unrequired Windows upgrade corrupting our till settings rather than our volunteers. Hopefully this has has now been cured. We were very grateful to the family of 4 who kindly volunteered to go on the next train, but it does emphasise the value... More

The new station building is so much nicer than the old one. Although the building is much larger, The shop/ticket office seem to be about the same size as previously. Included in the building are toilets (male, femail and handicapped) along with an office and a separate large community room which was being used by Superheroes stallholders and a beer... More

We visited the railway today with our 3yr old son. As it was the opening of the new (very smart) building and ticket office, they had lots of comic characters in full costume and unfortunately, our little boy was terrified of them. The railway staff went out of their way to talk to him and reassure him, even asking some... More

We visit this gem regularly as we live nearby. This weekend there was a circus there as well and that was great for the kids. Last weekend there was a vintage car fest and we loved that. Were going again in the 23 July as there is a meet the superheros event which the kids wspecially are really excited about.

We had a lovely afternoon here. Even though it was raining but perfect as we were on the train. Myself mother and the two children with me absolutely loved it. The staff couldn't be more kind and helpful, they were all extremely knowledgeable about the steam trains. They are a present building a community Centre there but it didn't affect... More

I visited this place with my elderly parents- And we thoroughly enjoyed the cute old style railway journey to the stonehenge work! The rainy weather didn't affect this trip at all, in fact, it was somewhat nicer and cozier to be on the open ended carriage whilst it started drizzling with rain :) The station has its own cafe, and...
