Great day out. Ok so not really cheap but where is? Accepted parking charges as there is no entry fee. Poured with rain when we got there so headed for cafe which was mayhem but fine (mind you we had eaten an early lunch so were just getting tea and cake). The train and station were fun - we just...

Give yourself plenty of time on a visit as there is so much to do. Adventure playgrounds, steam trains and nature trail for the kids. Bike rides and a number of walks + Go Ape for the larger kids ! Lots of car parking and open spaces for picnics etc + restaurant and gift shop.

We rented bikes for 3 hours at £10 each and had a lovely time. There are multiple tracks to try so we started with the blue track. It's a difficult track so wouldn't advise young children to try but it was exactly what we were hoping for. We rented our bikes at 930 and didn't see anyone for most of... More

I have been coming here since I was young and although changed a lot it has kept it most loved aspects. The miniature railway- although if I honest is overpriced but I do love the station where you have to 'all change' has not changed and still smells the same. The tree top trail is worth a walk on and... More

We arrived at 9 am as the visitor centre opened and were very warmly greeted and given good information about what is available. We immediately headed for the play trail and were really pleased to pretty much have it to ourselves. The various areas were excellent and our 3 and 9 year olds loved it. The treetop trail is beautiful.... More

Great fun for all the family. Could be ninety minutes and take you a little further. Take your rain mac and great activity to do in the rain. The safety advice is obviously important but delivered in a heavy handed way and can be a little off putting. Segway equipment was on good repair and the route you go along... More

Having enjoyed Moors Valley when our children were young, we took our two year grandson and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. The park has something for everybody, whether it is a ride on a steam train, a walk around the lake and nature trail or, for the more adventurous cycling around the woodland trail, exploring the wooden adventure trail and...

We went to this attraction as a family of 6, grandparents, parents , two grandsons aged 15 and 13. Everyone had a great day loads to do and see. Parking is expensive but entry is free so good value.

We went on a recommendation to go in the steam train ride - and even in the pouring rain it didn't disappoint! Sadly we didn't get a chance to see much more of the park, but the little steam train was brilliant, the kids (8yr old boy and 5.5yr old girl) loved it, as did I. Only downside was the... More
