  • We brought a beaver scout group here for a sleepover. It was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would strongly recommend this place for a day out or sleep over.
  • A great place for both children and adults - the top floor has glass walls so that you can see for miles!
  • Good variety of indoor activities, although some are getting a little tired and could do with TLC. Great outdoor space with playground. 3 kids under 7 were entertained for a solid couple of hours.
  • Tired and shabby. Many broken exhibits and very little to offer older children or adults.
  • Not a big place and some of the equipment not working. Needs bit of updating and repairing but still worth a visit with your children.
