As part of a day trip to the Peak District, our coach party visited Rowsley to enjoy a steam train ride. Unfortunately, there was no steam train (we were advised by one of the train volunteers that it had been out of action since August 2016), and instead boarded a diesel train. The train was cold, windows very dirty -... 更多
An enjoyable relaxing three course Sunday Lunch served by smiling friendly young ladies. Time to enjoy the scenery while eating your delicious meal. Will definately visit again.
This is a small heritage line called Peak Rail with about 4 miles of track running from Matlock to Rowsley. Access to the platforms of the 3 x stations is free, so good for photographs. Currently the small steam engine is out of action due to problems with an injector. Therefore diesel loco's are pulling the trains until a part... 更多
I am local to the area and I do photography, Peak Rail USED to be a picturesque, scenic steam hauled trip from Matlock Riverside to Rowsley south passing through Darley Dale with a longer stop of 5 minutes than the current "intercity" stop of 2 minutes, to allow visitors to explore the extensive sidings full of rolling stock and restoration... 更多
Peak rail train journey including Sunday lunch. Nice choice of menu. Pate starter to much pate and not enough toast. Drinks reasonable priced except for water 90p a glass and £2.50 for a jug of water totally unreasonable.
Nice to see a bit of history being lovingly preserved, but it's not really that special for the visitor problems meant we had diesel rather than steam and we stopped at a small halt shot of matlock no explanation for either. The journey is very short and very slow with long stops presumably to draw time out.the cafe on Rowsley... 更多
I came here with my Father- in-Law and Brother-in-Law as a preferred method of travel into Matlock. If you were born in the 50's and used to travel by rail as a child pre-Beeching this is the place to come for a nostalgic day out when staying in the area. Rattling down the track to Matlock is just wonderful, bringing... 更多
We visited during the 1940's Event and I found it an enjoyable day. The Setting is beautiful and the battle in the afternoon was fun to watch. My only complaints are the slow service in the tea room at Rowsley Station and the fact that someone was trying to organise the volunteers in there when there was a Queue to... 更多
We went when a 1940s weekend was on so the tickets were £12 instead of £8. However, I think we would have been in and out a lot quicker had it not been for the stalls etc as part of the weekend. Some people were friendly but one guy displaying his car was really uncommunicative and rude when I enquired... 更多
Not sure if this trip was on a bad day at the Peak Rail, but from start to finish, apart from the Diesel driver, no one smiled, and no one wanted to talk to you, and when you asked a question, there was lots of huffing and puffing, and no real answer, made it a very uncomfortable day out. Do... 更多
