Summer Steamings at Bolton Steam Museum
Volunteers from the Northern Mill Engine Society have rescued and restored 30 old stationary steam engines, which once powered the cotton mills and woollen mills of the North of England. Our oldest engine is nearly 180 years old, and most are over 100 years old. Some engines are now unique - the only one of its type to survive anywhere in the world!
We have an activity trail for the children, and full disabled access and baby changing facilities.
The Engine View Cafe offers drinks and snacks, admission is free, with free unlimited parking on Morrison's Supermarket Car Park site
Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
