  • Visited with family, last visit approximately 20 years ago. A few interesting features I hadn't remembered but little to inspire younger folk. Friendly staff but the young lady in the shop had little ...  more »
  • Paid over £25 for two adults and a concession (our toddler was free). Far too expensive for what was in effect a very short ride on a funicular and a walk round an overgrown, run down area. Interactiv...  more »
  • We went to the CAT centre not really knowing what to expect, but we had a great day out there. The weather that day was awful so I don't think we spent as long there as we would have if the weather wa...  more »
  • First time while I was stepping into this nature-make camper/research center, I was sort of surprised, because unlike the update modern civilized master planning the way of constructions and landscape are still quite raw and untamed. Eco-friendly is the priority here. Unfortunately it was winter time during the graduation ceremony, all I saw just muddy ground, bare forest.
  • An absolutely great place to spend a fun day at ! :)
  • Great interesting place to visit if you are like minded. I found out that I can wee on my compost!! Great food in the cafe, friendly staff. Was raining when we went. But still managed to spend 5 hours there and could have spent longer. The children's activities were great. I also joined in. Lots for kids to do, lots of paths etc to explore, the mole hole was good. Very impressed with their shop, lots of eco products and reasonably priced gifts. The funicular railway was great. Very inspirational place. Adventure playground for kids.
  • Many interesting exhibits with plenty of information about a wide variety of 'green' options. Including what plants and herbs to plant, how to compost and hints for good ground irrigation and drainage. There is an information centre with a well stocked and thoughtfully laid out gift shop. Well worth a visit!
  • This place never ceases to inspire. A living and working example of how human interaction with the planet can be mutually beneficial....and the cafe serves great food.
