If at all interested in engines this is must. Brilliant, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff who also work on the engines. My 5 year old grandson and I just loved it.

Took my 11 y/o autistic son and had a great tour guided by the bosses young son. Worked a treat as he could explain about the engines at a level my son could understand. Will go again when the workshops are on.

Hidden away just outside Poynton is a jewel of our engineering history. For those interested in diesel and stem engines this is a must. There is a craft centre, café/shop and the engines get fired up regularly. Will visit again when time permits!!

Sorry don't know but there is plenty of ground to give them a walk before you go in and some areas are outside so you shouldn't have a problem.
