  • Well the fact we have been here 3 times says it all! My daughter loves this place and we can not come to the Lake District without a trip to the Rock Shop. Yes it's small but it's brilliantly done :)
  • Nice little shop for all things rocky/fossily. Kids seem to like it a lot for the pebble pit and the dinosaur trail. Worth a little visit.

  • its a bit niche but the kids absolutely love it and the 'do it all' package can keep them entertained for at least an hour!
  • Dinosaur experience wasn't really worth the £4.50 in my opinion. Alex was frightened by it and despite having only stepped over the threshold of the 'experience' before being frightened we were told "we don't give refunds. You wouldn't expect any other attractions to give a refund if your child was frightened there". This is true, but I would expect an age recommendation at such attractions.
