    We went with our two children on a wet afternoon and had a lovely time. The kids enjoyed watching the yellow duck race, seeing all the animals and as we went during pirate week we saw Jack Sparrow who...  more »

  • This place is a variety of different attractions and displays together in one place - it appears disorganised at first glance but that's half the attraction of it. The food is good quality and there's plenty of it in each serving. We went at Easter when there's loads of activities going on and the mad hatter & Alice in wonderland tea party is very good - the staff that play these roles are also really engaging. It would be 5 stars but the place just needs to be fixed up a little - the toilets are functional but not pleasant & the diggers in the play area are broken. These are really minor things and I think I will visit again - it was a great day out and improved by great staff.
  • Love this place as do the kids. We're season ticket holders and visit regularly, prob once a month at least. Great place rain or shine.
  • Lots of history re surrounding area. Great that dogs are allowed in too. Only a short walk from our campsite.
  • Lots to see and great for all the family. Lots of fun food/drink/music etc festivals held throughout the year.
  • Great experience. Worth a visit with family
