  • Unless you have young children, I cannot recommend this place. It was a waster of our time, money and effort. Lunch gave little choice - a few pies or sausage rolls or pre-made sandwiches (all contain...  more »

  • Great place to visit! There was plenty of attractions to keep the kids 2,4,4 yrs old entertained. The start was a bit scary for them but it was still great. The kids loved the play and the jousting tournament. The magic show was very cramped but the rest looks like its built for 10 times the crowds they get.
  • Amazing place to get some fun and entertain not only kids but adults too. Definitely will come back for evening entertainments
  • This place is soooo much fun! The kids and I spent the whole day and we had a ball. Staff were super friendly and right into the theme of the place, calling all the customers Lords and Ladies. Something for everyone here.
  • Fabulous family entertainment. We enjoyed a great day exploring the castle, watching the talented actors perform several comedic shows and the royal joust at 2pm was a highlight! Visit wouldn't have been complete with a visit to the lollie shop and purchasing our green screen photos! 😄
  • Would eat fun for my kids at 7 n 9 years old. Face painting was excellent and the potion workshop was the highlight. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Would be nice if there's animal feeding for the kids.
