Had our 7 month old son with us. Prices are reasonable and lots to do with young kids 2-10 years old. Once in there are no extra costs for the activities.

We visited with a toddler and a dog, and we're very impressed. The play equipment was perfect for young children and there was plenty to do. Extremely dog friendly. Nice cafe.

The only downside to our visit was the weather but that cannot be helped. There is plenty to do for everyone so would throughly recommend it. The staff were very helpful and friendly and could not do enough to help. Well worth a visit.

I'm not sure about a double pram but there were single buggies being lifted into the main train. There was a container carriage to take the pushchairs/prams.

I think your daughter might get bored, there's not much to see for a girl that age, my 3 y old son is train mad, if he wasn't into trains we wouldn't even take him there.
