The teenager's didn't really won't to go in but when they got in there they really enjoyed the experience. Rolling rock and watching how the chocolate Santa's were made. Watching the machine that bagged the sweets was there best bit. I asked them why and they said it reminded them of Charlie and the chocolate factory

Visited with our two Grandchildren in half time. We had a good time but the only thing I felt was not up to scratch was when the rock rolling began. The children rolled it out on the white counter in front which was directly were people were standing watching the rock been made. People were leaning on this counter, hands... More

We have been here several times, an interesting experience for the grandchildren, who get to roll their own name in a stick of rock. A visit to the shop after is necessary too.

The children's play area is a great area with some great activities, however the age limits for each section are totally ignored and this can be dangerous for the younger children. The first thing you notice when you walk in is the awful smell - it smells like soiled nappies or like walking into an old people's home. The toilets... More

Great visit with the family. The staff were fab and our kids loved rolling their own rock. Chocolate is always a winner too! Definitely worth a visit :)

My husband, daughter (4) and I went to the rock factory after seeing the review on tripadvisor. What tripadvisor doesn't say is how lovely the staff are.

John Bull is a factory tour with rock and chocolate making exhibits. Unfortunately there was no rock making on the time we visited but a video was shown of the process. Our guide was friendly and informative all our questions were answered. Cheap entry fee. Freebies on the way around. Child play area on site. Would recommend for a rainy... More
