It's not cheap - we paid £13.50 per adult for a return fare, although there is currently a special offer on where children (3+) travel for £1 instead of £6.80 which is a good deal (until the end of November). With hindsight I think that Mia was still a little young, she is currently at the stage where she can't sit still (although does that ever end) and just wanted to crawl about on the floor with a toy car. That was a bit awkward in a cramped carriage which was divided into small compartments. It's worth knowing that alternate services are run with open carriages, which might have worked better for us.

They also run a special Father Christmas service at Christmas which I remember going on when I was little. I would definitely like to take our little ones on it one year, although I think we'll wait until Mia is a bit older. We also pulled up alongside a very comfortable dining car where people were enjoying their Sunday lunch - I think that's definitely a child-free occasion!
