Great day out with decent parking. Older kids loved the boating lake and jumping in a canoe, the restaurant is busy and not the best if I am honest. Limited activities for real little ones, steam trains are great and fun to see as well...More

Little disappointed. The adverts did their trick and enticed us in. Train rides were fab. Would be a brilliant place for children under 6. Not as large or as amazing as map suggests. But they have plans to make it better...

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.
