If you are in the Aylesbury area and enjoy Roald Dahl and his marvellous creations at all, then this is an absolute must. Full of brilliant things and activities that are a true tribute to such a marvellous author

There’s no parking, you have to park in town. We parked on Whitehall street and it was £2.80 for 5 hours (long stay) short stay car parks may be slightly closer but more expensive
