some interesting bits, good events for children but a bit pricey and a nightmare to get to without a car.

“Interesting”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Live nearby and the 'railway children' really work so hard there to make an excellent experience. Can't rate it too highly - especially if you have children (of all ages!)

“Great day out”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

First visit and was very impressed. We had a lovely sunny day which really helped but there is so much to do there so even if the weather does turn it would not be a problem. We spent nearly two hours in the museum alone. Plenty of space for families to have a pic-nic and for children to run around and let of steam! safely and with no problems to the more mature visitors who sometimes frown on children just having fun.
We would certainly return again and enjoyed a very pleasing day out. Well done Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.

“A great day out”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Our interest was sparked by a desire to see the old Oxford station which was transported to Bucks Railway Centre when it was removed form Oxford to make way for a college. I am so sorry we never visted sooner! A wonderful day out - absolutely fascinating though a bit saddening in the context of our privatised and diminisehd modern railway. Excellent facilities and wonderful exhibits.

“Typical preserved railway.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

A typical preserved railway really! Interesting exhibits to see over quite a large site. Decent cafe and friendly staff. Worth a visit.
