Didcot Railway Centre (Didcot) Reviews
Newest Review: ... check entry prices first." is very accurate, but my experience making enquiries by e-mail were more in line with his warnings and less complimentary comments: "Didcot, the venue deserves five stars, but your some of your volunteers don't have a clue how to speak to PAYING customers. 3 stars because of this." and comments made to him by staff at the venue "Well you should have read the website more carefully".
