We provide a large, free car park, with a short walk to Cranmore Station. This main station building houses The Station Cafe and Toilets at ground level, the Ticket Office and Shop at platform level. For the children there is a Play Area situated next to the Cafe patio, so the adults can enjoy some refreshments while the kids let off steam!
The newly refurbished and re-branded Station Cafe is open Wednesday to Sunday 9:30 - 16:30 and the Office and Shop are open Tuesday-Friday 10.30am-3.30pm. Visit The Station Cafe website here... https://www.bistrocatering.co.uk/the-station-cafe
As well as steam train rides we have many special events for visitors to enjoy throughout our season, plus a variety of dining trains to savour and for the enthusiast footplate experiences, to get up close to the wonder of steam! Our station waiting room replica musuem at the end of the platform, hosts an interesting selection of memorabilia and is one not to miss.
East Somerset Models is an independent shop based in a small building on the left side of the car park. They stock a wide range of model railway items and please see their website www.esmodels.co.uk for opening times and further details.
