A delightful day out amongst steam trains - Such a relaxed friendly place to wander amongst amazing pieces of history. You don't need to be a huge steam train fan to just enjoy a fun day. Explore trains, carriages, ride in beautiful old carriages behind glorious old steam trains and just enjoy being left to wander around. Wonderful photo opportunities and just a benign atmosphere.- Corinne B - August 2020
