On Saturday we went Avon Valley Railway to see Thomas and he didn't disappoint. The train ride is about an hour long with 2 stops at either end of the line where the children can all get out and watch Thomas being moved to the other end of the train. At the station there is face-painting, ballooning and some carousel rides. Z and E really enjoyed it and we took a picnic, despite it being really cold. I'd recommend taking your own food as although there are nice homemade cakes, proper food options were a bit limited and the queues were huge.
