Second time we have been now and my daughter enjoys it every time, for a £1 she can make some rock or a lolly, or pay for both (cash only). Lovely seeing how the factory... read more

We visited today and it wasn't very busy. My kids made a stick of rock. We enjoyed walking through the different parts of the factory and eating lots of free samples. The biscuits were amazing . The walk through isn't very long but it's very enjoyable. The shop has a huge selection of rock ,biscuits, sweets and chocolates. The prices... More

I do not understand John Bull, bank holiday weekend, car park full and yet when you go into the factory shop only one member of staff on duty and long queue to get served. Ended up putting goods back on shelf and leaving. Not the first time service has been this poor. Will be a long time before making another... More

The visits starts with a short film, then you make your own way round the factory and exhibits. The first stop is a chance to roll your own rock for a £1 a go which is then wrapped for you to take home and eat at your leisure. After rolling your rock you can watch rock being made before moving... More

went in with the kids we all found it very interesting and my kids were quiet all of the trip. Fantastic value and somewhere to go if the weather is not the best.

The visit begins with a historical overview which is nicely done but won't appeal to youngsters. However seeing rock being made and rolling your own stick is a special treat. There are other sweet things being made and a treasure trove of temptations to buy. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful.

Good price to get in & under 4's are free. The kids got to roll out some rock (which was actually quite hard to do!) then saw chocolate making & tasted biscuits. Only lasts about half an hour but was enjoyable.

We went on the rock factory tour today. Our two girls aged 7 and 9 really enjoyed rolling their own stick of rock (much harder to do than you realise!). The staff throughout the little tour were all lovely and really helpful. Samples galore to try then a very well stocked factory shop at the end. Our girls loved seeing... More
