“Lovely ride on a miniature railway”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Only a short journey (8 mins each way) but it's cheap and fun. Had a nice lunch at the end in the coffee shop.

“Quick trip to Sea Life Centre”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We took this train from Peasholme to Scalby and stopped off to visit the Sea Life Centre. My 2 year old loved it although it was quite a short journey (10mins).

“Olde worldly”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

It only lasts 20 mins look for any offers because it s quite costly for just 20 mins - old and quirky well worth a trip to see and experience
