14 of us met for a family get together and had a great time. It was so busy which was good to see. We still parked ok and got a bench. Well done The Look Out!

I've been coming here for 15 years with our oldest son and youngest daughter and it's a timeless and reliable go-to place when you want your kids to have fun and learn something!! All too often they get told to "put that down" or "don't touch that" and by the end of the day we lose the will to live... More

Look out Bracknell was recommended to us by a school teacher and it was a brilliant educational day out. Parking: you park on pay and display area. £2 for 4hrs and £4 for whole day. If you buy tickets for Discovery Centre on the same day, by producing the pay and display ticket's second part you get £2 discount. There... More

This was our first visit and we went on an inset day after the Easter half term, so although it was busy, it wasn't too bad. The parking is reasonable at £4 for all day, but you do get some of that back on the entrance fee it seems. Entry was reasonable and we paid for a show and it... More

The lookout is great a place for families, there are lots of fun stuff to do such as cycling routes,building dens out of sticks and the discovery centre is for 11 years and under which is very educational. You can also run a cross country. The bad points are the amount the of car park spaces, the food is expensive... More

2 adults, 2 children of 4 & 5yrs old were suitably entertained today. The construction Zone was a huge hit. A chance to tile a room & build walls using foam bricks, wheel barrows & tipper trucks. A lovely open area with water play & interacting games. Further through the doors, are lots of interacting games to make things work.... More

Relatively new cycling routes (green/blue/red) for different difficulties are available to cycle. The area of Swinley forest used to be open for cycling on a DIY basis but now, as well, there are designated tracks which you can just follow and tell you the route and distance so you can choose the one(s) that suit you best.

Lovely location for a couples walk with the dog. Plenty of room for our dog to get some off lead exploration in the wooded areas. Paths are clean and litter free. Shame some dog owners either don't pick up or pick up and leave the bag? The coffee shop has great food but limited In selection. Great for an afternoon... More

We held a 5th birthday party here, what a great day. The staff were amazing and kids loved it. Best to have it in the morning when it's quiet. Great value for money.
