Do not miss this its for all ages, the staff are so friendly and explain everything, you get to make a stick of rock ( a very big one at that), sample some Yorkshire biscuits and make a chocolate lolly. Seeing how the rock was made is amazing and there's a very good shop too. The building next to this... More

The tour is self led but as you go through the factory the staff talk to you and tell you all about what they are making. Very friendly staff and the personal touch with the staff was a nice touch. We found the 'rock' making very interesting esp how they make the letters. Free samples and a lovely shop to... More

There is a lack of consistency here. Some visitors were given rock on entry,others not.some were given chocolate lollies,others not.the place seems to come to a standstill when it gets busy. The cafe staff can't cope and we witnessed a family complaining about the wait,having waited forty minutes for our lunch. This Place could be fantastic it just needs some... More

Rock factory ok. kids play area ok. Only one card payment machine between two cafes and the pay desk.young kids running all the catering. No organisation at all. Added to a forty minute wait for a toastie.play area with one baby changing no disabled toilets get your act together

Good little place. Great to see the rock being made close up. Staff couldn't have been more friendly. Kids loved it. Won't be here long but really good value. Great cafe next door as well.

Worth a visit and you get to make your own rock to take home. You get to see them making rock, from pouring out and kneading/colouring the syrup and putting in the letters and it then gets put into a rolling out machine and cut up. A fascinating couple of hours. The children loved it (and so did Daddy!!!!!)

We decided on this last minute & we were very glad we did, we had a lovely family afternoon . I never quite knew just how much work went into making rock, they have done a terrific job transforming the experience. Well situated just outside Bridlington, there is a cafe & a soft play area as well so all ages... More
