After buying a Groupon voucher earlier this week, we decided to make the most of the sunshine yesterday and visit the railway. There were 7 of us in total - 4 adults and 3 children (7 years and under). I can only echo the opinion of the previous review - it really is a great day out for the whole family! All the staff are so helpful and enthusiastic. We started our journey at Epping Station on one of the Heritage Buses, boarded a diesel train at North Weald, had lunch in one of the picnic areas, then repeated the journey on a Steam train, and finished off with a drink and some great food outside the Kings Head Pub right by North Weald Station before boarding an old routemaster back to Epping Station (what a great conductor on the 4pm bus!). The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so did the adults! We will all be back for the Santa Specials at Christmas!!
Tip - do check the steam trains are running on the day you plan to visit.
