Details

We have four modern meeting rooms, ideal for seminars and group training, which can be readily adapted to suit your specific requirements. There is plenty of space outside too, ideal for team building exercises and more.

For a really creative twist, why not book out a railway carriage to make for an inspiring and interesting meeting venue? What’s more, our Victorian Goods Shed is a spacious, versatile and interesting location to host larger events such as a product launch.

Visitors will be able to enjoy full access to the Heritage Centre, Goods Shed and Restoration Shed, and, subject to availability, we could even arrange a steam train ride.

CATERING - The whole site is fully licensed, and our on-site caterers can provide catering ranging from teas and coffees through to lunches, BBQs and hog roasts.

Although the museum is virtually fully accessible, due to us being at a functioning railway station, visitors using wheel chairs will need the assistance of a carer to navigate the separate accessible entrance and security gate on the opposite side of the rail track.
