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.- Elizabeth E - July 2020
Following the Government's announcement of the end of lockdown, our STEAM INTO CHRISTMAS experience will go ahead at weekends in December and on Tue 22 and Wed 23.
We are continuing our activities safely, in accordance with government guidelines and are limiting numbers to keep everyone safe. Current regulations means that all tickets must be booked in advance. We can only accept bookings for up to six people and are legally required to share contact details with Public Health Track & Trace if requested.
