Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great introduction to the history of Peterborough and the region. Sit and watch the passing view in the cabin. Free. Highly recommended!

Nearly missed this one. However so glad we didn’t. A great snapshot of local history wihich can be done in about half an hour. A great job has been done in restoring and repurposing a vintage railway carriage.

Peterborough and steam. Well worth it. This 1 carriage free museum is just a taste of the area. Filled with artifacts and info it gives a glimpse into the lives of our past of the great steam age. Inside the end are still cabins as comfy the day they were made to show off how travel was like in the early 20th century. Have we lost it now. I think so.
Visit here even if you go to steamtown.
Locayed mainstreet right next to town hall. On the otherside is an old locomotive to climb aboard

This a free museum. You sit on the train & watch the history. It is very well done, in a well restored carriage & great for all the tourists passing through. Thank you to Peterborough

We dropped in to this self guide, free entry museum which is located in the Main Street of Peterborough.
The time line history of the settlement and development of the area was fascinating.
Located in a train carriage we loved the sound and video of the scenery passing by the train as it passes through Manahill. The funny thing was that we had only just stopped at Manahill to take photos of the beautiful station house. Well worth a visit.

Great summary of rail and town history. Totally free and very well done. Visit here before you go to Steamtown for a bit of background.

This town is so full of railway history. The town has displayed it very well. This display is well worth the stop. You can park your caravan opposite it . The windows on the carriages become a movie screen.. Again well worth the stop.
