The National Railway Museum

March 16, 2013

Last month (was it really so long ago? How fast is this year going?!) we went along to the National Railway Museum in York to check out the trains. Sam loves trains! He loves Chuggington and Thomas the Tank Engine so we knew this would be the ideal day out for him. It’s fairly unusual lately that we have a proper family day out so we were thrilled when Craig got up after 5 hours sleep and a long night at work to come with us!

I forgot how much I love the city of York. It’s been years since I went there and as soon as I saw the minster, the walls and signs for the Jorvik centre I wanted to stay all weekend! Next time we go the NRM (probably in a couple of weeks) I think we’ll stay overnight. There’s so much to do there!

The NRM is fabulous for anyone who loves trains. It’s absolutely huge with loads of real locomotives for you to have a look at, look in and look under. There’s a couple of cafes, a play area for the kids, a mini steam train, a big steam train (both of which you can ride on), a library, toy engines for the children to ride, a couple of gift shops and probably a whole host of other things we didn’t get time to try.

Did we have a good time? What do you think?!

We found the GrumpyishMum family there too!
