We took our 3 year old and 18 month old on Sunday. It pays to check before you go as to what trains are running. Luckily we had 3 trains running along with the carousel. We didn't have to queue which was great. A word of warning the carousel does go quite fast compared to others I have been on. There is an indoor playroom that has a number of train tables set which for any train mad child they will be in their element! There were baby change facilities although the lighting was not that good. We ate in the onsite cafe which has a good selection of food although we were opting for baked potatoes but they had run out by 12.45pm and there was a considerable queue of people behind us. The cafe could of done with a bit more organising with staff flitting from between jobs. It would of been better if one member could of manned the till, one on drinks, one on cabinet food and another on hot food. The gardens were a great place for the kids to run around and let off steam. We also popped next door to the Wyevale garden Centre for afternoon tea. There is a great indoor play area but there is a charge to use it. The service in the cafe was very slow. We waited 15 mins queuing and prep time just for coffees and this was not at a busy time of day!
