Love this place when the beer festival is on. I work behind the bar and the atmosphere is amazing. Best beer venue around.

This unique venue is ridiculously cheap. For £5 you gain access to a roundhouse with an impressive array of steam and diesel locomotives. There are also other locomotives on site which are visible from a viewing platform. The cafe is also good value.

A good place to visit to see these old workhorses of days gone by. We went on a special photographic event so had more to interest us and give them more "life". There is a lot to look at; also a good cafe and they do a number of family events. One visit would be enough for me but it was an interesting exoerience.

This was a real a trip down memory lane, with lots of local information and anecdotes. A fantastic collection of engines and train paraphernalia, of interest to adults and children alike. We spent more than an hour looking around and then had a snack in the cafe. Long time since I have had a cob - a northern staple!
