A nice place for a walk especially for kids but everything is just too old and a bit pricey for the rides available.

Wicksteed is a great place for a get together for kids to have a run around. Loads of free play area but also offers rides for the bigger kids. The prices for the tickets/wrist bands can be quite pricey. Lovely new indoor play area which is great for raining days, loads of rooms to have a picnic/BBQ. It's a shame... More

A wonderful family friendly day out with the added attractions of birds & meerkats. There are rides for people of all ages, plenty of food & drink options, many seating areas & plenty of other things to do including boat rides & a train ride as well. The face painting & gift shop are good if not a little pricey... More

Great New Year Event, loved the food and the disco. I enjoyed the big band but felt they were not quite right for a New Year Party, would have been perfect for an evening event. Lots of little extra's, party hats, blowers and poppers. Lovely atmosphere.

Another lovely day out at west lodge and even better it was the Christmas experience. My little girl loved the whole thing especially being an angel in the nativity. Will be back soon

Christmas party for the second year in a row. And the food is average, I want coffee after and it's never available. The music system needs a complete over hall , distaughted and the do needs shooting. He played Michael bullels over and over. I liked it twice after that,...... there has to be other music.
