A brilliant place for dinosaur mad people of all ages. Very friendly management who clearly love their job. It isn't the biggest attraction but entry lets you come in and out all day so well worth it. Highly recommend

From the outside you might walk by as it doesn't look much. However for an hour its a great educational and enjoyable stop. They put on a great Easter quiz which my son really enjoyed!

Took my 3 year old who loves dinosaurs and his little brother here on a Sunday morning and they both loved it! The guy on reception was really friendly and helpful and I could leave the buggy whilst the little one ran around as it was quiet. We've been to most dinosaur parks and although this is very small it's... More
