We got the combined ticket with the boat trip! All of the family absolutely loved it!!! When we got off the train there was a guy from an Owl Sanctuary who was letting kids hold the owls for free and explaining what kind of owls they were etc!! There was a lovely walk and play area at the end of the track. Highly recommend for families with young children!!

Not bad pricing. Steam train timed to meet lake steamer boat. Three adults 2 children under 4. Great views to be had on the trip on Lake Windermere. There is an aquarium at Lakeside, has potential but needs a bit of TLC.

Booked along side the Windermere cruise to Bowness and the combined family ticket at £42 for up to 5 people, I felt was good value for money. The chap who provides the commentary was a highly very versed young man on the history of the line which added to the experience. Great to be able to see the working of the engines etc.

We went on this attraction as a group of nearly 40 people. On arrival it was interesting to see the engine sheds and the steaming of a locomotive. The station was quaint and lovely as were the railway carriages. Seats had been reserved for us all in the old carriages. He journey was slow but had beautiful views of the over and countryside. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip even though it was an unexpectedly short journey.
Maybe more explanatory notices would be helpful as I was very curious of the history of this line, having never heard of it.

My little boy is obsessed with trains and he was not disappointed....
A steam shed where we could see old trains up close, a viewing gallery on the other side of the tracks and a live steak train that for a small fare you can rude on to lakeside.
We where fortunate enough to visit during half term where they had birds of prey and a halloween theme going on. The kids loved it and so did the adults.
