Great for the family with lots to see and do. Usually free entry. During the holidays they tend to have special exhibitions which are chargeable but often worth it. On bank holidays there is usually a fayre/fete with external contributors. These are held outside on the grass, so obviously weather dependent. Worth a visit.

The attraction has a superb discovery hall featuring particularly various forms of transport ...with some fine old stagecoaches,carriages,cars etc. The museum at the other end of the site in the old stables you can discover the life of people in the Chiltern Hills from pre-history to...

Today we visited stockwood with children aged 3 to 9, all of the children enjoyed the Lego exhibit and we spent the whole day looking at the gardens and exhibitions. A really good family day out

Situated just off junction 10 of the M1 it's an easy place to find The setting is lovely and parking is free - what more could you ask!? They have a great café (slightly pricey at £2.50 for a coffee) but take your own picnic and hey presto it's all very cheap :-) It's right next to a park so... More

whenever we come back to luton to visit my parents, my kids always want to come here, which is fine with me as the place is free and can keep the kids well entertained whilst we can enjoy a drink from the cafe.

Excellent day out. Before we knew it we'd been there all day! 2 young children were easily entertained by the playground. Had an amazing lunch, full to the brim. But had enough space later on for an ice cream. We paid slighlty more for the lego expo. We will be going back.

Recommend this place with so much to offer with many great views of the garden and museum section. Fantastic for a day out with family/children. Just don't get stung by a bee!
