Steam Into Christmas - 5 - 23 December - Full details and tickets

Festive Raffle 2020 - help raise money for our Diamond Jubilee Fund - Buy Tickets

The best of yesterday, history presented at its finest - A wonderful step back in time. Plenty of space to move around and see exhibits, everyone is friendly (including the steam engines). You really can't go wrong if you have a day out here. There is a good guidebook which helps in seeing much that is there, complete with detail and style. A great gift shop and a great cuppa made the day even better. This was my first time there, and on the basis of my first visit, I very much wish to visit again.
