  • Great trip out with the kids. The fossil walk and gem panning went down very well with out 7 & 5 year old. The café is also good value. The Steeple Grange Light Railway is a short walk away, which we also enjoyed (but check opening days).
  • My wife and I have visited this centre many times and have found it to be very interesting and worth while. The staff are excellent and there are many interesting walks to be taken - WELL DONE !!
  • Nice place. Could be made much more of with the right funding.
  • Was ok
