Definitely a place for the children. Lots for them to do, making and messing about with chocolate. An indoor and outdoor play area. While the children play there is a very nice cafe serving coffee, teas, sandwich, soups, scones and lunch menu.

Its about £6 for kids to use the indoor & outdoor play areas and free for adults. If the child will do the chocolate experience, then it is about £16 - but that includes the indoor/outdoor play areas.
