Story Tram Reviews

SamanthaLetten - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was so pleased to finally get tickets for the very popular story tram. We very often watch the tram from the wetlands but haven’t been on it before as for a family it is quite an expensive trip. The story tram offers a cheaper way of having this experience.

We boarded the tram which was done up to match the story, once we got to Colyton there were lots of activities for the children. Nicola who was running the slot we booked was very friendly and the staff had obviously gone to a lot of effort for the event. In all honesty I didn’t expect it to be so enjoyable but we had a brilliant time.

On the way back we decide to go on the open top tram which was so fun! The driver was very informative and once we departed he let my children ding the tram bell which made their day! We will definitely be returning!
