  • Lovely place to visit and the staff seem to love and breath it. Kids need to be over 7 I would say to enjoy it. The reading classes are great but I would skip the class where you get to paint a ceramic cupcake as it was underwhelming!
  • Fantastic childrens museum with lots of interactive elements. The cafe serves great food but is often very crowded especially at the weekend
  • Great fun for the little ones, with lots of interest for grown ups too. Full of interesting facts about this great writer along with interactive games and storytelling plays to get involved in.
  • A very nice experience. A lot of effort is made to encourage children to read and write stories themselves.
  • Brilliant little place, with stunning surroundings. Gets busy at holiday times, shop a little expensive. Overall however, its really great.
