This is somewhere you can go with the family, as a couple or alone. There is so much to see in both the steam museum and the gardens. The train rides are a delight (I love the gallopers as well). There is an excellent café...More

Took our young grandson, who absolutely loves it here. Rode the gallopers three times and twice on the train, as it wound its way through the estate. The gardens are always amazing, but in the autumn sunshine it all looked a picture. He certainly enjoyed...More

Went with my partner. he loved it. Especially the trains to ride on and inside the buildings. Lovely venue, carousel good. Dads Army exhibition was great. Steam rides, slow but nice. Big gardens there. Cheap as we got there late. Wish we had gone earlier,...More

Had a wonderful day out here with the kids. They just loved the steam trains and carousel ride and were excited to discover the small arcade too. The gardens were beautiful and are so obviously well looked after, took some lovely photos. After reading many...More

We left totally upset and deflated; £15 per adult and for only two of the six or seven attractions to actually be open was very poor. Very basic with poorly kept rolling stock (including one of the trains wheels locking up as it was moving,...More

Total waste of £15 fee per adult. 2 attractions running and the other 6 shut. Noticed the fun fair was at an additional cost which given the entry fee is appalling. Engine Shed for the 2 foot and 15 inch railways looked like a shack...More

We used Tesco clubcard vouchers, so this was a cheap day out for us. We've previously been at full price, but that was a few years ago. We arrived at Bressingham at around 10:30, with the trains starting at 11am. We left at closing, having...More

This is still a firm favourite of ours. Unlimited rides on the trains and 3 rides on the gallopers. There's quite a few displays to look round and a high tags fun fair at certain times with an extra charge. It is worth checking the...More

From the entrance it seems a small site, with the kids play area, cafe, railway bits and gardens all within very short distance, but it was deceiving. The railway restoration barns and sheds housed quite a few trains (or parts of them), and the gardens...More

There are the sheds which house the engines and. Also the Dad’s Arny museum. The gardens are beautful and should not be missed so you really do need nice weather.

No idea. It won't break the bank though. Give them a call and ask.
