Great place for sharing old time. nostalgia with the kids. Love how the birds are wandering around. Great kids playground. Good to check out the Printing Press and can do activities on the spot. Generous staff. Glad that entry prices did get reduced last year and hope that remains. Our boys love the miniature train displays. Wonder if there were adult period costume dress ups available (like the school visit kids get) if that might boost the numbers when it's not a special events day?
I came here on New Years day this year with my daughter and a couple of other family members and had a great time! We used our Entertainment Book voucher to make it a bit cheaper. Lots of old buildings and bits of machinery to look at but I think the highlight of the day was the train ride
A nice place to go and wander around, see the old buildings and ride on the trains - but the price is ridiculous. Definitely not worth the cost if you have a whole family to take. If it was more reasonably priced we would go more often.
