One of the many steam train stations. Does have a view to the sea, too! Well worth the effort and you can clearly see that it's been recently renovated.

The station is currently being rebuilt, but the ticket office is warm and welcoming. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. We're already looking forward to visiting again in 2018.
