I normally visit Stockwood Discovery Centre in the winter but as we were in the area decided to visit on a warm day. It was lovely and my daughter loved playing in the park, as always. 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

Excellent area for kids to explore, free entrance, nice people, great cafe. The area is always clean and tidy, lovely surroundings, and a very reasonably priced shop, they rely on donations, so please give generiously on the way out!

I did wedding pics there. I did not even know the place was there and I've been in this town over 25 years. I'm planning on going up there for the afternoon soon as its looked really cool. From what I saw, it looks great fun,

What a great little find, had long wait between flights and went here for lunch with our 5 y/o son! Lovely museum, great restaurant with fresh home-made food, excellent service, warm and very helpful, spotlessly clean! Play area was excellent, park and little nature walk was lovely!!! Never been anywhere quite as nice and it was FREE!!!!! 10/10

Terrific place to take the grandchildren - a lot of local history and special exhibitions (the Star Wars exhibition is great - extra charge for entry) and practically everything is FREE. Good eating area and great climbing frames - the kids loved it. Thoroughly recommend for all ages.

So well organised,clean,and wonderfully laid out. A great day out for all the family young and old. Good food well prepared and excellent value.( Try the burgers,)(macdonalds eat your heart out). The best part is to come 95 per cent of facilities are free. Yes no entrance fee. Visit the website you won't be sorry.

The Discovery Centre is a great place for kids to get an idea of the history, as well as learning something new - whether it be one of the dinosaur exhibitions, or the recent space exhibition. It's usually free to enter, but on bank holidays and special events there is often a charge to enter. Outside of the events, it's... More
