Great atmosphere. A chance to ride a variety of trams, and visit the tram sheds and see the trams first hand. Excellent for children if it's raining as there is a lot of space undercover and you can ride the trams until the children get bored. There is a pub on site that sells good real ale and home cooked... More

Very nice place to visit. Plenty of fun available for all ages. Only fault I had initially was when my daughter of 3 years injured herself, the staff weren't very useful. I was given the first aid kit and told they didn't know what was best to do. Luckily I know enough about first aid. However, aftercare was good, when... More

Lovely day out with a combination of interest, fun and shopping. A great way to engage in something educational and interesting without the bore, with an interactive visitor centre, amusements and cheap yet quality gift shop.

One-of-a-kind outdoor museum in the UK. It feels a bit out in the sticks to get there but once you're there, it's a fab place to visit, especially if you want to see what it was like to live in the now dim-and-distant past. A short walk from the carpark to the Ticket Hall and once you're through the gate... More

This is a nice day out, the trams were interesting and it was clearly a project that the volunteers are passionate about and you could tell which was lovely. The reclaimed building were very interesting and the tram ride was fun. The sculpture park was absolutely excellent and the park areas were good too. My gripe is that it is... More
