We have done this tour years ago but enjoyed it the second time round just as much. Good commentary from the train driver as we went along and plenty of photo opportunities. Great views from the Eyefull Tower as it was a lovely sunny day. Very enjoyable.

The overall experience complete with the history behind the development of the place makes it not only an enjoyable experience but also an education. The views at the top are just absolutely stunning - we were lucky we went on a beautiful day. Highly recommended to families of all ages.
