Lots of interaction and authenticity here. We particularly enjoyed the slot machines, driving the daimler through a simulator, and the plush seating in the tram

A great run through vehicular history with plenty of local information. Lots of vehicles for kids to climb on. The “coach ride” may seem low-tech from the outside but it was gave us all a clearer impression of what coach travellers experienced in the past.

There is a multi storey car park next to the Magistrates Court which is cheaper than the local Council ones. There is also plenty of on street car parking closer if you're only staying a short while.

I think you can walk over the bridge and get to it from the deep. Probably 5-10 mins?
