“Very Beautiful Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We went to check out all of the Royal Doulton. The building is wonderful. But for people that are touring on their own, there needs to be more information listed that tells you about it. There is something outside, but I didn't see anything inside. That aside, it was still very stunning!

“Nice building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

The railway station is a nice building, with a lovely interior. You don't need to spend much time here, but it is worth visiting if in sightseeing in Dunedin.

“A trip back in time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

What a wonderful step back in time to when the railways were a focal point of travel and business. The station building is a magnificent structure from a by-gone era which evoked nostalgic memories rom my youth. The ornate interior and central staircase is fantastic and the "work" side of the station with it's wide platform and rail yard conjures memories of a busy travel hub long past. A must see for any history buffs.

“Amazing building - the cathedral of stations in Southern Hemisphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

We had to stop several times to photograph this building from both ends. Entering the building we were almost transfixed by the marble floors and their decoration. It only operates one service nowadays to the Taieri Gorge through which flows the second longest river in New Zealand over rapids and through some wide flowing sections. We took the train journey in an old train carriage to Pukerangi, which we were told had recently doubled in size from two to four dwellings! Once we reached the destination several passengers left for their vehicles which had been driven to collect them. The journey passed through rock tunnels and across difficult looking bridges and "shaky" looking tracks. Quite a journey and worth the experience
