A great day out with many different activities, especially if you have children - and it’s free! An interesting transport museum and a photographic exhibition (at the moment), plus a decent cafe and all inside - though there is lots of outside seating for the...More

We have been to the discovery centre a number of times now. The displays are awesome, especially the early motor vehicles from the once local Vauxhall car plant. Very informative, and free (a rarity in this day and age). Outside, but within the centre, there...More

Always a good place to visit to pass away a few hours. Never gets tired. Lovely cafe/restaurant and beautiful grounds.

A lovely attraction, but please don't bother with the restaurant. I brought my 12 year old son to play in the play area for an hour or two while I did some work on my blog. "Free Wi-Fi" was displayed all over the place. I...More

We were delighted to discover this brilliant place, for both adults and children of varying age. Doubt there's anything that hasn't been said in previous reviews, although I suspect that the Electric car charger might not have been mentioned before.

A little gem tucked away on the outskirts of Luton airport. Lovely gardens, play area, museums with interactive exhibits and a café. Lots of seating around the gardens to just unwind and relax. The kids love it. And best of all, its free entry.

Lots to see and do for all the family. Free admission. Great cafe and lovely gardens to walk around. Families or couples or just on your own. Always have a nice time when I visit here.

Something for everyone. The exhibits in the Mossman collection are interesting, some offer interactive opportunities. The Heritage Gardens were not particularly tidy the last time we visited, however, still a joy to meander through. Children loved the activity area, the spider especially. Cafe area offered...More
