Steam train enthusiasts will love this. Museum has lots of old trains & carriages, with good souvenir shop. Only a short train ride which is a bit pricey for the distance travelled but worth it for the experience.

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.

There is a small car park and it's free. Anytime you should be fine to fit in there except for the santa train times in December.
