Visited this for the second time with my wife, seven year old boy and in laws. Loved it! Never heard of anything like this anywhere else. Its a fairytale/gothic/fantasy labyrinth packed full of undergound passages, mazes, follys etc. There is no right way or wrong way to go, just plenty to explore, get wet, and get lost. This should be... More

Very enjoyable day out for all. Took daughter and grandchildren. All had a great day out. Expect the unexpected. Staff were very pleasant and helpful Even though my mobility is a little limited I still managed to see lots and had a good day. Well worth a visit and a second visit to find all we missed the first time... More

Love the Forbidden Corner. Clever, funny and unique. Highly recommended. I've been with kids of various ages and with just adults and everyone enjoyed it. Great food in the cafe and excellent value.

This is a truly different place to visit and one which appeals to all people of all ages who like to explore and be surprised. We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and enjoyed a lovely lunch.

This place was very strange and, ultimately, a lot of fun. At first, it seemed kind of boring but the variety of strangeness really won us over. I'd recommend it to a family although it was a tad overpriced.

We went here with our two children and our friends four children ranging in ages 4 to 13 and everyone had a great time. There is so much to explore and figure out. We had a fabulous time we couldn't believe what there was to do. We went on a Sunday and it wasn't all that crowded. We had lunch... More

Lots to find and enjoy in this amazing place! Must check the amazing Toilets! Some bits can be a bit scary for small children but these can be avoided

We had an enjoyable afternoon exploring this unusual garden. (50 yr old Female, 10 yr old boy) We may have missed the odd thing as no directions. If you are happy not knowing what you will come across this is the perfect place for you. A bit crowded in places (people not wanting to pass through the water, as the... More
