The day was great, from endless rides on Thomas to seeing the Fat Controller. & the other engines it was amazing. Baby J & Cousin S had loads of fun! There was lots for children to do & the day was well planned with a schedule of shows. & activities. All the staff at the centre got into the spirit of things & were dressed as characters. With do much to do it made for a great family day.
I'd recommend taking a picnic as there is a lovely picnic area where you can watch the trains going by, & if you are looking for gifts I'd suggest going in the gift shop first as by 2pm the queue was long out the door.
The site is buggy accessible after a shirt flight of stairs, with small buggy parks dotted around so you can park up & enjoy things. I'd also suggest not dressing your children in their best clothes, as with trains come grease & oil!
We loved the day, seeing Baby J. & Cousin S faces in totally awe seeing Thomas was priceless!
