Visited on the 26th of June, Easy to find and only a few minutes from the M1 which is a bonus. Lots to see in beautiful surroundings which is one of the reasons it is so popular so don't expect the place to yourself. Very spread out so to visit the different parts means wandering through the wonderful gardens

Inside there are a number of exhibitions mainly around transport. The cafe looked good and we had coffees outside in... More

I visited the Stockwood Discovery Centre on Sunday 3 July 2016 with my family. The actual place itself if very well maintained. The gardens are beautiful and it's somewhere I would love to go camping with the family if they ever decide to allow it. The reason why I gave it only 3 stars is the café. I have young... More

I'm a local and on my days off me n husband always come here. To unwind and have a coffee and/or a meal. It has a very entertaining garden and the lovely little cafe is a plus.
