Excellent value for a child friendly day out. Sadly the train was undergoing repairs but we had a fab time. Great for kids of all ages. Highly recommended.

This is a great day out and not expensive. Sandpit paddling pool parks and animals as well its a really nice day. Also gardens to look around don't forget bird food. The only problem is the length of time it takes to get food there was an hour wait so take a picnic there are great places to eat.
