The Look Out has potential to be a great centre for learning. Unfortunately it is run down, broken and needs and a lick of paint. The outdoor area attached to Swinley Forest however is great for kids to play at.More

Hi Charlie, Thank you for your review. We work very hard to keep the centre in great condition and will shortly be painting internally throughout the building. I would love to get some more specific feedback from you. Perhaps you could email us on thelookout@Bracknell-forest.gov.uk...More

A lovely place to learn some science and get out of the rain. Includes a cafe and a shop. Good fun with lots of interaction.

My grandchildren love it, plenty of room to run around without being mowed down by cyclists. They are taken there regularly by their parents as it is free. Been there ourselves and rate it.

Good mix of educational activities and fun for children and adults. Mix of indoors and outdoors activities. Parking is available and can be a bit disorganised when busy. Well worth a visit.
