I visited with my friend and her twin boys who are 1. The staff were friendly. It was a good distraction and wasn’t too long. We will come back in the summer

Both of my sons always enjoy a visit to the railway everytime we go to Victoria Country Park. Staff are always friendly and it's well worth the money for the ride.

Good price for the little ride that was kids highlight. Not very long opening hours so check before you go e.g. not open til 11 on Sunday.

Very cheap, young children loved it, shame it wasn't staffed well as we wanted to stop at other station and get the return later but not enough staff to do this

A small narrow gauge railway which trundles a short distance through the park. It's great, cheap, fun for children and for big children like us! Great history as well.
