The vintage buses were a great and the miniature railway and the buses they keep stock I would definitely come back as I have done for a few year after a great day out with a group of us on the Tolkin weekend we found it a great day out.

We spent a wet Bank Holiday and enjoyed every minute of it. The displays are very well laid out and informative, the staff helpful and the work of the museum explained in detail. And to cap it all, the bus ride was very nostalgic and just the right length. We'll go again.

You can spend a fun couple of hours for a modest fee (£3 adult admission @ September 2013) at this museum. There is a huge collection of old buses and milk floats, which have been restored by a team of volunteers. There are information boards telling the history of many of the vehicles, also a film and display area with... More

At first I thought the satnav had thrown a fit because for some reason I ended up in a small lane that appeared to go nowhere. As I turned round to leave in frustration, I saw an entrance and a sign I couldn't quite make out but for some reason caught me. So I drove down a little more and... More
