The staff are all going about their usual work day. You walk round the factory yourself and there are information posters, tv screens, viewing areas, etc.... More

Watching the whole process of making rock was really interesting, the staff all busy doing their normal days work, but still finding time to pass out samples. From the rock making room you move onto the chocolate room and the biscuit room, all very informative and all still done by hand.

Well worth a visit £3.50 pp entry. Take the time in the first rock making part to ensure you see all the processes. At 52 I still enjoyed rolling my own piece of rock for an extra £1 and you can also make a lolly for £1 too but I didn't do that. We were there about an hour and... More

Popped in today for a visit, we first had some food which was quite reasonable for 2 adults and 1 8yr old child, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the burger from the specials board was Devine, we then decided to do the tour( ensure you ring in advance for when the tours start), which was very reasonable,...

Loved the factory shop, took boys to visit and they loved it. Going back again to do the tour and make rock. Soft play was busy and a little untidy but not to be unexpected due to high volume of people it's hard to keep spotless. Don't be put off by this as staff were very friendly and efficient at...

Great visit for the price, you can roll your own rock. The only thing I would say is that it isn't very big and you can walk around quick quickly.

Went on weekend so no tours, (which is silly) play area average wouldn't say it was a bad place but wouldn't say it is a "must visit"

Nice little tour of how rock is made and some interactive moments where you roll your own rock to take home. The tour itself wasn't very interactive and long but for the price it was worth every penny
