Took our 2 year old and 6 week old today. What a breath of fresh air to have a lovely day out for FREE! Lunch was £15 for 4 drinks, sandwich, 2 toasties & small bowl of chips...so not too bad considering you're getting in for free. Energetic 2 year old burned lots of energy on the play area and...

We really loved it! Our kid had a great time running around and for us, the adults, it was really interesting to see the galleries and the gardens.

It is a good thing to do for a few hours. It is very interesting with the galleries and walks around the gardens. But it would be better if they changed something every now and then. It has been the same for years.

Freedom to let the kids roam but with enough little bits to keep them interested and occupied. Good little cafe so no need to lug a cooler around.

A real gem in Luton. Lots to do for all ages. I have a young family and my two boys really enjoy all that stock wood has to offer. There is also a lovely coffee shop on site serving fresh food.

We actually managed to look round all the exhibits in the gallery rather than bypassing them to get to the special exhibition at the... More
