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

Visited on a wet Good-Friday mid afternoon. Expected the place to be very busy but surprised this not the case.....unless we had arrived just after the rush. Entrance fee is for the basic tour, but for an extra £1 per child they can roll their own stick of rock, and later in the tour make their own chocolate lolly (for... More

Only had a chance to visit the shop - full of rock and other tooth-rotters! Not cheap but if you like rock, you have died and gone to heaven (no doubt full of over-worked tooth fairies!). Bought two sticks of bright blue Chelsea FC rock - other top Premiership clubs available - for some friends' children.

This was a worthwhile little trip. Nothing to get excited about, and certainly won't take up an entire day, but good for the kids. Our daughter rolled some rock. Seeing it done professionally is an image that sticks with me as I've never seen it being done. She also made a chocolate lolly by putting chocolate into a mould. A... More

Visited the Rock factory one rainy afternoon. Entrance to the factory is very cheap and for an extra pound you can roll your own rock which was a good laugh. The history film at the start of the tour is a bit boring but the rest of the tour and process is very interesting and free samples all round the... More

But funny enough there was a tour just coming out with approx 30 people who said there was nothing wrong with the boiler and they reckoned it was a delay tactic because they just... More
