Fabulous visit
nov. de 2021 • Pareja
What an amazing place the visitor centre is. Four of us visited today and the admission fee is £5 for adults, £2.50 for concessions. As three of us are senior citizens, our comment at the end was, that’s the best value for money for £2.50 we’ve ever had!

The exhibitions are brilliant and we spent three hours reminiscing about all the Scalextric‘s and train sets we used to have as children. The history of Hornby and its transition from the 1900s to now are very informative and extremely clear.Even though we are seniors, we did the kids’ quiz, which no doubt would keep children occupied throughout their visit.

All the model trains are working working and brilliant displays.

Then we visited the cafe where one of our party asked for a decaffeinated tea, which they had. Very helpful staff and a very nice lunch.

I cannot rate this visitor centre highly enough.

More 'training' for staff needed
nov. de 2021 • Amigos
A visit to the centre was interesting. Marketing could take advantage of modern trends/interests more proactively.
Cafe was nice, friendly staff, sensible pricing.
When enquiring over the phone regarding a slot car availability, for my brother who races slit cars, I was told the item was 'x', but that there might be some in the box at the back. So we said we would come back over the weekend. On returning to the centre, I was told by shop staff that there were slot cars of that make in the back, but he would not consider selling one, as the manager was on a day off and he 'thought' they were going to be used for an event. No offer to contact the manager to confirm, despite reminding him of the phone call 2 days earlier.
So, with a list of other possible slot cars, the staff did not appear to be knowledgable about type, make etc. It was only by virtue of the fact that I had a picture of the slot cars desired, that they had a clue as to what I was after.
Bear in mind these slot cars are £44+, so not a toy.
Disappointing shopping experience. I am from the North East of England, so no opportunity to go back when the manager returns.
It's a shame as Hornby is iconic and would much rather purchase from their shop than on ebay.
However, ebay it is in this instance.

2hr Drive there and well worth it
oct. de 2021
A really good attraction. Amazing layouts and displays. My 7yr old son was in heaven as was I. Well priced. Not huge but decent and no complaints. The only thing was from the outside it looked a bit closed but when we got closer there were lights on. Great fun.

A big thank you from "The Nostalgic Sandwich Group" for our visit yesterday. It was a real trip down memory lane. David gave us a tour and happily answered our questions. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We all relived our childhood playing with some of the exhibits. Our visit to the cafe added to the day. I recommend the bacon sandwich. We all hope to revisit once the works have been completed.

Great museum for all the family
mar. de 2020 • Familia
Had been meaning to visit for a while so took my husband along on his birthday along with our two year old grandson. Very impressed with the centre, much bigger than we expected. They both enjoyed all the interactive train sets and scalextric. Found all the models and information very interesting.
Very impressed with the cafe, again lots of things to keep the children occupied whilst we enjoyed a nice lunch.
Found the staff very friendly.

Fascinating to visit this really interesting Visitors Centre. Full of models and history of the Company, even my wife found it interesting. Cafe serving simple food was inexpensive.

The Hornby Visitor Centre
mar. de 2020
Hornby has a wonderful exhibition. What I like is it’s not too information board heavy but gets to the point and have lots of interactive layouts and moving exhibits. Great display of models from throughout the years. But I’ have loved to have seen a Hornby O gauge or Hornby Dublo layout there too.

Fab place to visit
feb. de 2020 • Familia
Went to HVC on a wet & windy day and thought it would interest my sons for an hour but 3 hours later we left with the three of us having had a fantastic time. My boys loved having a great time on the Scalextric track - probably helped by it being a Monday and quiet but still.... The cafe was very reasonably priced and we had a good light lunch. The centre has reinspired my sons with modelling and they have both said they would like to go back there.

Visitor Centre was Excellent the shop a bit disappointing
mar. de 2020
Visitor Centre was Excellent some really excellent nostalgia. The shop that is attached a bit disappointing with not much varied Hornby stock and quite small Lot's of the same items , but the good thing is the Locomotives are on display so you can see them visually before buying

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed the Visitor Centre. With the Shop we do not have anything that is doubled up. With Hornby there may be a few items that look similar but all have different code numbers. All our stock is from the current range. Kindest regards, HVC Team.
