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
