There is very little to recommend this venue. It is expensive to enter but really nothing to see except a badly stocked souvenir shop - mostly cheap imported trash, a sunken blue tractor (which was our granddaughter most loved attraction) and a small gauge train (not even steam) which cost a further £2 as adults have to pay to accompany...

Had not been here for at least 20 years and took my kids here today. Park has plenty to offer kids. Lots of outdoor activities set in beautiful country side.Prices were reasonable and staff seemed very friendly. If you want to get your kids to burn off some energy this is a great place. Dinosaurs were friendly too!

We regularly go here with a big group of friends, with young children. The camp site is well designed for big groups and often has a number staying. There are also more secluded pitches. Having free access to the park is brilliant and a real draw for us. The only downside that I see is that there are only three... More

This is a great place to go with young children. My 2 year old son loved the dinosaur walk and the small train and enjoyed playing in the sandpit and in the outdoor play areas. With lots of space to run around with his friends and have a picnic. A fantastic location with so much to do to keep young... More

Excellent park though gets really busy on weekends or holiday times. I prefer it during weekdays during termtime. Have a toddler who loves the playgrounds, softplay, train & petting farm. Recommend taking a picnic as cafe food isn't too exciting & bit pricey for what it is. Great place for family day out.

I took my godsons here (3 and 5) and we were kept busy all day. There's a great range of activities and play areas for kids of all ages, the boys particularly liked the giant 'jumping pillow', sandpit and most of all, the dinosaur area which we visited twice. The park is a little pricey, we paid around £35 for... More

I live very close to Wellington Country Park and have visited on a couple of occasions. I always feel like the price paid is excessive for a family of four for a single visit. The pricing seems geared up to encouraging annual passes for locals to buy rather than encouraging visits from further afield. The facilities in the park are... More

Just came back from my 2nd visit to Wellington country park and overall I had a good day, helped mostly by the weather. We arranged to meet some other members of my family and in total there were 7 adults and 5 children. The children were 2, 7, 9, 12 & 14 so mixed ages. We took our own food,... More

I met two friends both with young children at this park today. Between the 3 of us we have 9 children age 5 and under. We had a wonderful day fun packed day from 10.30 till 5pm. We went on the train, walked round the lake, visited the farm and used the many play areas, the best one is the... More

We had a caravan rally in the Deer park. What a relaxing weekend, stalking deer (for photos...) listening to Cuckoos and Pheasants before heading into the park proper. Entrance was included with the camping and the entertainment laid on was great - we particularly enjoyed the wildlife show that they brought in. Lots of play areas for kids of all... More
