  • Excellent especially for little ones. A lot of effort has been put into the presentation and models. Could be a little larger for the price but there is limited space in the building. Can get very busy. Inside is pram safe. The small garden area is not
  • So well organised. A delight to see the favourite stories and characters so artistically portrayed. Every corner and turn has surprises and delights to look at.
  • Ideal for a rainy day in the lakes. Kids loved this place, lots of nostalgic treats and a interactive educational section. Amazing gift shop, we took or time when going around and felt we could have stayed a little longer.
  • Really magical for young kids (under 7s), but you need to take your time as it's a fairly quick route through exhibits otherwise. Cafe is family friendly with fresh soups and sandwiches, if a little packed in on terms of seating. Nearby pay and display car park a good base for Windermere exploring.
  • Great for kids. Displays really well made. Activity pack for kids very good and makes much more out of a visit. Cafe small so bear in mind if going for lunch etc, luckily lots of pubs opposite.
