Great place to walk round, animals to see, educational, large as well. Free parking, play area and they normally have a fair and a few projects on so worth checking what events are planned.

Despite more restricted opening hours, this is still the best tribute to Captain Cook in the area. Educational and good for kids. Set in wonderful Stewarts Park. The cafe is very good too.

Ideal for a historical visit of the most famous person from our area. Situated within Stewarts Park, a vast area for walking and seeing animals, free parking and play area for children.

This museum is set in the grounds of Stewart Park. the museum is very educational with activities for children to do related to Captain Cook. Even period clothes to try on. There is also a cafe called Nana Tom's which serves delicious snacks well worth a visit

There are several ponds on the site with loads of wildlife to see. The museum itself is dedicated to captain cook. There is all you need to... More
