Ride the train with Santa on board making his way through the carriages having gifts to each child. A fun couple of hours. And cheap too.

Was a really fun day out. With two children with additional needs, days out can be hard to plan for, but the volunteers couldn't have been more helpful. Really looking forward to coming back.

For a mere five pounds sterling I was allowed to drive the Leeds built 0-6-0 saddletank Sir Berkeley, a Victorian locomotive of 19 tons. The driver and fireman gave a brief and simple instruction on it's operation, guiding... More

Went with my sister and her grandson and had a wonderful 3 hours in the museum and in the train ride. Definitely somewhere I'd go again. Something for all age groups.
