Fascinating in the extreme. A brilliant concept - So much for modern life and progress as a need for such institutions today. A visit will explain.

Saw this next to the info centre, it was open so we went in. Simply charming little place, lots of references to the Dickens's Christmas tale but the courtyard garden and the little travellers' rooms were perfect. Lovely place.

Obviously a much loved building...with a fascinating history. That history is clearly told in each room, by furnishing and wall-information. Two posters from Railway Mission very educative too. I liked whatever mentioned the founder & his vision.
