A "Rail" fab day out
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Excellent access throughout, from the accessible parking directly at the front of the venue there is level access at the entrance. Lifts get you to the different levels and halls. It has many ramps to enable you to see in the drivers can of some of the steam engines and a ramp that takes you inside one of the carriages of a bullet train. There are a good amount of accessible toilets throughout the different halls.
Transport & Parking
There is excellent accessible parking directly outside the front door. The train station is a few minutes walk away. There were several buses passing but unsure of the service. There is also a "mini train" shuttle service that takes you to the Minster from the rail museum which is also accessible
Almost all areas were accessible apart from a couple of viewing platforms into the drivers cabs of the engines. In the restaurant that we were in there was seats specifically marked for wheelchairs. I felt the information signage at each display was a good size.
There seemed to be a large amount of good sized accessible toilets everywhere throughout the museum.
Extremely helpful and friendly. Always willing to answer any questions you may have.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
A fantastic day out for young and old even if you have no particular interest in trains. Well worth a visit!!
