Excellent venue for a small wedding
"We attended a family wedding here recently and what a wonderful afternoon it was. The carriage has room for about 16 guests with the remaining room used for the wedding ceremony. We were greeted by staff on arrival and shown to the Countess of York where we were served drinks and canapés on the veranda. If you have children with you there are 2 small lawns to play on or for photographs. The meal and wines were excellent and the 2 waitresses very attentive. The linens and cutlery were of high quality. We had the use of the carriage and grounds for as long as we wanted and we were able to have an after-hours tour of the Railway Museum itself. Everything seemed to be very well organised and I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue for a wedding or other function."
