Tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Plenty to see, sadly no machinery was running when we visited. Also, no cafe for a pitstop. Overall, well worth the visit with an inexpensive admission charge.

While this museum does have an interesting collection the fella who gives the demonstrations is dead interesting and funny. He made the whole experience in my book.

An old building on Liverpool Canal in Leeds. It was absolutely empty when we were there on Saturday afternoon. It's paid attraction. Many floors and rooms full of old equipments (printing machines, cameras, wool processing machines, etc). The premises are nostalgic and creative. If you...More

Can you walk to it from the train station. It looks like there is a footpath along the canal/river.
