  • Harry Potteresque - Once on the platform we boarded the train (covid restrictions applied) and stepped back in time and themes of Harry Potters Hogwarts express sprang to mind! Brilliant!
  • Grand day out! - I thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip, from the steam train to the ferry ride and of course, the boat trip. The designated seating and screens made me feel very safe. Well done!
  • 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!
