Great Afternoon Out - Amazing afternoon at Didcot.
Quite a lot to see and you have unlimited train rides up and down the track.
Enjoyed the museum and signalling centre.
Many photos taken.
I would say if you took a slow walk you could do the experience in a few hours so not an all day thing.
Also right next to Didcot railway station so transport links are great.
Staff super friendly especially the staff member in the museum.
Would like to go again.
