This place is amazing, I've been coming since a young child and it never disappoints. We've now brought our own children here a few times and they always have a great time. So much to do and you can bring a picnic if you want....More

Went recently with my wife. It has been open for 175 years now! Some parts of the park are new to me, other bits still familiar. Still a great place for kids, especially the younger ones, plenty of fuel for their imaginations.

I was expecting a little more for the money, however I haven't been before and had a vision in my head of what I was expecting. Definately for younger children as it is very much about exploring and imagination. We spent 4 hours there and...More

Quiteexpensivefor a family of four but thourily enjoyed our visit, suitable for under 10’s but lovely for the mum & dads too. Only critism is very limited menu in the cafe not many healthy options so if you want healthy take a packed lunch.
