  • Excellent. Recommended. - Numbers on board restricted due to Covid, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The Round Robin three-in-one ticket is a must do if you are in the area.
  • Lovely day out - We decided on a steam train and boat ride day. The train was lovely, and the boat ride was a lot of fun with an entertaining guide, which one of my teenage daughters found hilarious!
  • All lovely - All done very well. Everything clean (train/boats), staff friendly and commentary on the river cruise added a bit of fun. Really good day out, lots of families. Take hats, drinks and dogs! If you have one.
