We have done this for 2 years now and will book again. It’s brilliantly priced, small train ride and plenty to keep young kids amused on the train. Snacks and drinks provided and the volunteers are really good at getting everyone into the Christmas spirit.

What a bargain.. a mile or so on an authentic steam train with vintage carriages and your ticket lasts all day. Friendly knowledgeable staff and a great shop and little museam. Don't hesitate to go.
