Fabulous for kids and I enjoyed because I'm interested in old forms of transport. Spent two hours there and it was very informative. Plenty of people from different places there whilst I was there.

Fab find and totally free. We parked five minute walk away for £2.50 for the day. There was free face painting and free craft activities. Shame this place doesn’t have a cafe or somewhere for coffee but otherwise a fab day!
