Pirates and Princesses had been closed down now for 2 months. So there is no way you could have been here on the date you have put so you must be thinking of somewhere else.

Being in a relatively good location is pretty much all this place has going for it. The entrance is horrible, it feels like you are breaking into somewhere and the doors are heavy and a nightmare for little kids and pushchairs. There is rarely anyone...More
