Fantastic day out - First museum trip out post lock down and Didcot was a good as ever. Great COVID measures that don’t spoil the day but make you feel safe. Lots of fun exploring the site, riding the train and going for a picnic. An amazing collection and lots to see. Even better when the sun shines!
