Very disappointed at getting there all the way from Thirsk only to find it shut today. Hours of business not brilliant and not very helpful. Heard about the place thru the grapevine and made the drive across country to see first hand how rock is made.I won't be making the journey again. That is not to say to anyone in... More

.........it wasn't as expensive to get in as I thought it would be. We went on a rainy day in July, the play gym looked really busy so we didn't go in there (much to my daughters disgust!) the factory tour opens at 1 so we went in the cafe to have a drink before it opened, the cafe wasn't... More

It was extremely busy when we arrived so we had a coffee in the cafe and waited. Friendly, helpful staff. Interesting and informative. Kids loved making their own stick of rock.

We arrived and let my 2 year old wear himself out in the play gym, was very reasonably priced and my son had a whale of a time running of steam. The staff are very friendly and we loved the tour (although we have done it before), rolling rock and watching sweets being made, then sampling them with biscuits on... More

We went on a rainy day from Filey. 2 adults & 2 children (aged 5 & 3). We went in the play gym first which was very good, food & drinks very reasonable (1.75 for coffee, 3.00 for a panini). We were in there 2 hours & the children were happily entertained. It was fairly busy but not classed as... More

We has lunch in the cafe, everything is cooked fresh and the food was lovely and very reasonable. The cafe also... More

Did the tour this Bank holiday Monday and cost only £9 for the 4 of us. The kids loved it - you can pay extra (£1 each) to roll your own stick of rock and make a chocolate lolly. The tour was interesting, you can help yourself to sweets, fudge and biscuits on the way round too. All in all... More
