Had a lovely afternoon riding on trams, trolley buses and a small train. Lots of fun for the kids. Static history items to see too. Staffed by enthusiastic volunteers. Worth a bisit!

Thank for your review of the museum. We are sorry the woodland Tram section was closed but this is due to some urgent track repair work taking place.

BEWARE the gates for the car park do not open until 11.30am and so you wait on the road. The small car park is free. We had a great day. The Simplex "Thorpeness" was well maintained and had a carriage suitable for disabled passengers. The...More
