Alford Valley Railway

70 Main St, Alford AB33 8AA, UK

This was such a blast from the past on a steam train. Through the golf course we went to the park, the train runs every 20 minutes from 12.30 to 4pm.

The boys loved it - doesn't take long, trains every 40mins, would definitely go back

Grampian Transport Museum

Montgarrie Rd, Alford AB33 8AE, UK – 01975 562292

Not too big, but has a wide selection of interesting vehicles including caravans and a hotel train. The bike section upstairs is well worth a look and you can even sit on a penny farthing (makes for some hilarious photos!). The cafe is a good spot to rest your feet and they serve some nice pieces.

This small but epic museum is packed full of transport exhibits. From the historical to modern there is loads to see and do. They have taken time to ensure that there are things to do for all ages. Entry is affordable and there are good consession rates available. The cafe is a really reasonably priced and the staff are welcoming and friendly. It's good for a family visit if you are looking for something a little different.

Haughton House Holiday Park

14E Firs, Alford AB33 8NA, UK – 01975 562107

Had a great stay! Minimal use of facilities and short stay, but very impressed with what i saw.

We stayed Saturday to Saturday when schools were in. Monday to Thursday were fine but both weekends were awful - out of control, mouthy, badly behaved kids running wild (parents not much better). No staff/wardens/rangers to complain to. Toilets were good and plenty of walks and surrounds are pleasant
