  • Stumbled on this searching things to do and it is well worth a visit. You have to pay £1 donation per person but you have so many sculptures to see. Never used the cafe but what i did see looked out. ...  more »

  • Such a lovely FREE place to visit. Lots of room for children and dogs. The sculptures are all very impressive. Has a cafe too which serves very yummy grub!
  • Wonderful variety of items, it is a cornucopia of treasures for the eyes!!!! It's a must visit, the imagination and skill has blown me away. Thank you to the people who have brought together some wonderful skills and pieces, then allowed the public to come and appreciate them!!!! Please do more workshops and advertise them!!!!
  • As I love sculptures I wasn't disappointed with our visit,especially with free entry and parking.Lots to see, the bumblebee transformer is amazing - as my photo. Went especially to see the Knife Angel - Wow - what can I say ? - BRILLIANT !! Had to see it before it left - hope it gets displayed in a City or Town ,( if not London)where it can get the world's attention it disserves.They are trying to collect 1 million cleaned out tin cans, so do take some with you if you able.
  • We visited on Good Friday when the weather was a bit glum. I had a 15yr old and 11yr old daughters with me and grandparents, who suggested bringing us here. The driveway got us all excited and it really was a good sign. When we got out of the car the first sculptures to catch our eyes were the Terminator and Alien ones... and my eldest was desperate to go see the giant spider. The iron 'safari park' to walk around was really interesting as all the sculptures are created by different people. A scorpion and alligator on a roof was a bit unusual too. As the rain started we moved under cover and the creations for sale were amazing. I could have spent a fortune. The indoor 'marketplace' was beautiful with so much to see and even as we sat enjoying a cup of tea, we noticed things up high that we had missed. The Amnesty angel made from knives was truly unique and such an inspiring way to use the knives for good. I would definitely come back, probably on a sunny day and picnic here.
  • Great family day out. Lots to see, plenty of space for the children to play & a lovely coffee shop.
