“Great for kids and grandads”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

We have been several times, great rides and not nearby for us, a resonably priced afternoon out, and nice tea and cakes. All volunteer staff they do very well

“Excellent day out”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Our family really enjoyed our day out at this attraction. It was my eldest Son’s birthday treat. If your sons and daughters love trains then this is the event for you. The attraction is run by volunteers. They chat to you and your children with great enthusiasm.

The look and feel of the place reminds me of my childhood. The set up is rather Heath Robinson but it works. Look out for the toilets as they are rather basic

Full commercialisation hasn’t hit this place, but I have noticed that prices are starting to creep up. They must be careful about this as they may put customers off.
