Dear Jmac90, our beam engines are very quiet, you can have a conversation quite easily whilst they are running. On steam days we also have the miniature railway and tours of the underground reservoir. This weekend, Oct 10th & 11th, we also have a 1940s event on site featuring many re-enactors in period costume, vintage vehicles, displays etc. All steam events run from 11am-5pm (last admission 4pm). A standard adult ticket is £8 and under 5yr olds are free.
