Really special experience, children get to see the workings of a steam train (although miniature as they are) with the smells of oil, smoke, steam - fantastic. The train operators are friendly and welcoming. Such a fab experience at such a low cost, rare thing these days. There is also an infant and older child playgrounds adjacent as well as a green park. Highly recommend.

Took my little one on if for the first time. Not sure she knew what was going on, but I loved it. Took me back to my childhood. Can’t wait to return. Excellent park next to it.

Excellent place to take the kids. Lovely mini steam train ride that only cost about 30p. Ice cream van and a park. Kids love it here we go often as live local.

Flixton park is a nice park to visit. Only small but the little model railway is a snip at what used to be 20p but it has probably gone up a bit now.
