Anyone got any reccommendations of places to visit for a day out like zoo's, adventure parks, museums etc that we can get too by train from Sheffield as my DD (3) and DS (2) are obsessed with transport so would be good to combine the two!!!

Leeds Museum is walking distance from Leeds station and is free. Not big enough to be a full day visit, but if part of the fun is the train journey there and back it's somewhere to go for a couple of hours in between, and I think they have some activities for children on during the school holidays.
