We had a wonderful day! With so much to do and only one entrance fee. Great value for money. With a 5 year old and an 18month old and we were able to do so much together as a family, both our boys loved it and we would definitely go back again.

Visited last weekend with grandsons aged 8, 5 and 2. They really enjoyed the train rides and also the canoes which are inclusive of the entry price. We thought it represented good value for money and all thoroughly enjoyed our day.
