Busy during our visit, and probably more suited to children older than the Five and seven year old we took. They found it a bit boring, The staff were very friendly, and the children enjoyed the rock rolling. Their favourite part was the soft play area. The food in the soft play was well suited to children and reasonably priced

Staying at a nearby caravan park, we were dismayed to find the typical British weather had followed us. So we picked up a John Bull Factory leaflet and not expecting much, we took the short drive to Bridlington. It was easy to find, with plenty of parking space...a good thing really as on a rainy day during the school hols,... More

A great attraction; children involved can get involved in the actual making of their own rock. Samples available on the tour for you or Mum & Dad to try. Granddaughter found the experience awesome.

it starts off with a very reasonable admission price and a video to keep you occupied in reception whilst you wait for the next tour to start a nice place to visit with seeing how rock is made, a chance to make your own piece of rock ( it hard to hear when the worker is trying to speak to... More

We went on a rainy day and they were under prepared for this. We had to wait for 30 minutes to begin which is fine before being hoarded into a crazily busy rock making room. Will not be going again.

The staff here are amazing so friendly and helpful. I went with my children and grandchildren and there was something for everyone. You get to taste the sweets and biscuits and even get to roll some rock. Well worth the money.

I had said I wouldn't go after all as a Granny having a rest, why would I want to? As it was a cold, wet day in August I reluctantly agreed to go. I had such fun. I am amazed that the factory coped with 40 people every 20 mins, almost non stop going through this factory. So well thought,... More

Also seen the biscuit making area with free nibbles and the chocolate making area and fudge. It was a little unorganised but still fun to see inside a... More
