Will Summerlee be open soon x
Why is Summerlee called Summerlee ???
A big thank you to the kind person who handed my mums purse into the reception on Wednesday 7th. The purse had things of sentimental value inside and it's very much appreciated xx
Had a great day at your Steam Fair event today. My daughter Emma loved riding on the top deck of your tram. She loves the place. 👍🏻
Is there anything on today? Just checking to see before we head over later
From a visit on Saturday 20th July.
Visited Summerlee today and would like to say I was extremely impressed with how accessible it was. My youngest son is nearly 3 and has cerebral palsy, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They got the accessible tram out for him and provided ramps and a member of staff to move them so he could access all the houses. They had a clean changing area with a full size change unit and hoist. Would highly recommend and will be back in the future. Thank you very much.
Had a fab day at Summerlee today
