Had a stop over for a couple of hours with a coach tour on the way home, not the sort of place I would normally visit can see the appeal for some people. Quite amusing to see what they stock very obscure items that only...More

We live nearby and won a prize to visit. We spent over 2.5hours here and really enjoyed the historic exhibition and the gardens. This is well worth a visit for all members of the family. Wish we'd been long ago!

Hello, I believe you can take dogs in the garden centre, but not the Paradise Park areas. As mentioned above its more of a play area etc.
