  • Great day at the urban beach at henshaws. The weather wasn't great but the children loved it. They loved looking at all the craft and we walked around the trail. We all had a great day and will definitely be going again.
  • Always a great place to visit. Staff are fantastic and there are a few acts on here now and again. They have a bar with loads of booze in it and once a year there's something called bedfest which comes with the bed race. Brilliant times have been spent there
  • Great idea. Set in a beautiful garden, lots to see and experience as a visitor. The food and second hand books helping to fund the service as well.
  • Urban beach first visit this year and it was amazing. Cafe, live music, brilliant people and fun for children in the sand.
  • Really lovely atmosphere on a bright sunny day.Will be back next year.
