I really enjoyed our train experience. Riding along on a real steam train was wonderful, and the countryside we travelled through was beautiful. It was very 'Harry Potter' like, especially as we paid the extra £2 for the First Class carriage, so we're sat in a carriage much like that of the Hogwarts Express. So whilst it has nothing to do with Harry Potter, if you/your children like HP then this is a lovely experience.
I also thought the stations were brilliant. They had authentic decor and props such as weighing scales, a bunch of suitcases, fire buckets, etc. and the small green area of the stations were beautifully kept with lovely trees and flowers.
The staff were excellent. Very informative, and all very friendly.
There wasn't a whole lot to do at the stations which was its only let down. But I'm really glad we did it and would certainly recommend it to anyone. Our one year old loved it too.
