  • Interesting day out with family, although no real play area to speak of. Plenty to look at and the ticket is valid for a year so can return in the future. Work was ongoing to move some of the flooded boats.
  • A lovely place to visit, with something different to view every time you go. Lots to view and learn and suitable for all ages - rain or shine do to both indoor and outdoor exhibits. Wonderfully interesting with a lovely cafe too. Perfect both as a quick visit or somewhere to spend a few hours.
  • Excellent place for a day out. Cafe serves good food and is very child friendly. Well worth a visit.
  • Staff are great, not a bad cafe. Been going there on and off for few years. Nice and clean
  • Nice place to moor for the night. Had a lovely cream tea in the cafe. More signs around the site would be helpful.
