I have not really been one for sitting on a 'noddy' train trundling around a town or city, but a member of our small group (two couples) wanted to give it a try so we did. The driver is friendly and accommodating, the trip lasted...More

Lovely driver....happy fellow users....very informative commentary (in English too if required) our 4 boys aged from 15- 2 enjoyed it a lot. Was raining when we used it and it also kept us dry 👌 Sit at the back for great pictures 😀

Good way to get an overview of the town - which is a long walk if you do it on foot. Talks you round the medieval part and the Roman remains.
