We did have a good time in here and it's in a lovely location to make a day of it but it's just a bit small compared to say @bristol . You couldn't spend a whole day here I don't think. However, £5 in Tesco clubcard vouchers for a family of four is a bargain ! We saw the "yucky... More

I have been here many times and have a family member working there. Fantastic for the kids of all ages. Lots to see and keep you interested. Parents will enjoy it also..... they get a break from the children.

This venue offers an entertaining approach to scientific learing. This is a very "hands on" learning facility, which I accept has its merits in that participants can learn by doing and discovering. Most of the participants there were children and semed to be very happy with "hands on" exhibits. However, as an adult, I would have preferred to have seen... More

Sat in the Colour one (forgotten the proper name) and even though it was for children I still enjoyed. Will happily... More

This is an amazing day out for the family and wonderful for the kids. Wonderful location for a walk afterwards. The café is always crowded so we take advantage of the surrounding places to get a bit to eat.

We went with 3 kids (6, 8, 11) in half term so it was quite busy. The queue to get in took a while but once we were in there was enough to occupy all the kids inside. We were slightly worried about when the cut off point would be when they wouldn't let anymore people in. It was quite... More
