  • So very disappointed to find the centre closed on a Saturday! Google search for directions, open today 10 till 4... nope. (Check their website and it has a tiny bit about being closed today - 3rd June ) Been before and I remember it being good. Very sad to find it closed when looking for stuff to do with the kids that wasn't just a park etc. Shame.
  • We had a great time here and enjoyed the walk up the wind turbine. The staff were lovely and very helpful.
  • At the base of one of the first wind turbines in Norfolk, is a centre trying to educate the importance of renewable energy and the ability right now for all of us to help reduce the destruction of our environment. I am by no means an ardent environmentalist, but the importance of what this centre demonstrates reinforces to me that we can all do more. A nice display of alternatively fuelled vehicles, EV recharging points and a tour to the top of the wind turbine makes this a place that can impact a child's outlook on the environment and what they can do to help support their future. Good vehicular access and parking, disabled parking and access and a very pleasant cafe on site. Well worth stopping at and spending some time. I would like to see this project expand and be echoed throughout the UK.
  • Very interesting, knowledgeable staff, good food
  • Absolutely amazing experience. Staff were exceedingly knowledgable and passionate about what they do. We attended the Turbine tour which runs at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, was well worth the money. We were then given an extensive tour around their garden which was amazing and we are very keen to get back there!
