Brilliant day out! - We had a fab time today visiting the Railway Museum. Our two boys, 3 and 4 absolutely loved it. The steam train rides are wonderful and you can ride it as much as you like. Lots of picnic tables and benches or grass to have some lunch or snacks. Felt very safe, lots of hand sanitiser and social distancing. Park in the car park across the road of Didcot train station then go into the train station, it’s signposted very well. Excellent day out and we will most definitely visit again.
