“Poor attraction !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

This looks a great place from outside but enter at your peril. Very expensive, for what amounts to maybe fifteen minutes of your day. Extremely poor with hardly anything of interest very very poor, rip off britain at its worst

“Great for a cheap, interesting day out.”

I went here with my baby daughter for a day out and it was surprisingly interesting. The cafe was lovely here and the staff are so friendly.

“Good place to visit in wet weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We needed somewhere to go when the weather was bad. Although there is a large outdoor area there was enough to see inside with an interesting display about the Ice age ect and a giant mammouth which would amaze most kids! Helpful and friendly staff.

“Possibly worth a visit?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

Plenty of parking just off the A49 and to the south of Craven Arms, it is a strange mixture of a Visitor Information Centre, a library, an art display area, a cafeteria, a walking centre and an attraction that tries to enthuse & inform on the local Area of Outstanding Beauty.
Unfortunately it does none of these very well, with the result that once visited you probably won't want to return. Council owned and financed it seems to have lost its way in its desire to become a general attraction.
