Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dulverton has a rich history and you can find all about it at this well-presented and interesting resource. Not to be missed if you visit the town. Art exhibitions on site too.

Was a really enjoyable 40 minutes or so. We’ve never been here before even though we only live 20 minutes down the road, we had a lovely time. And learnt a lot about the area, would be a great place to go if it’s raining! Plus it’s free which is definitely a bonus!!!

Very quaint little museum that we happened across and were glad we did. Railway artifacts were most evident but second hand books are sold upstairs to help raise funds. Model railway exhibit for children and adults to see as well.

I was in Dulverton in November and wanted to visit the model railway but officially it is closed in late Autumn/Winter. However I was fortunate to bump into one of the volunteers who very kindly allowed me in to view the remarkably detailed and accurate model of Dulverton station. For anyone even remotely interested in steam railways/local history this should not be missed. It is a superb model and really brings this part of the long closed railway back to life in way I would never have imagined.
