My little 2 year old loves trains. It was a themed day with Paw patrol around. It also had fire engines demonstrations. Lovely day out even though it was last minute definitely worth it.

Spent a lovely day here on a ‘steaming Day’. Quite a bit to look at and of course our son loved the steam train and mini train. Nice cafe and shop and picnic tables outside. All staff were lovely. Will definitely return.

Decided to go with a group of friends and we enjoyed it. I would recommend you go on the 'steam day' then you can ride for free on a working steam engine. There is plenty to look at and walk around for perhaps 2 hrs...More
