We visited Flambard's whilst on a coach holiday. As it was early in the year, the actual theme park was closed but that didn't worry us, being as we are of the older generation. However, the rest of Flambard's was absolutely lovely. I particularly liked...More

The fairground is getting very run down.. Hasn't changed much since I first went on a school trip and I'm 49 now. Lol. Britain in the blitz is educational but that alone doesn't warrant the entrance price.

I think it is. We arrived when it opened and noticed more folk arriving by lunchtime. Those I spoke to came later for the fireworks.

It's quite small and aimed more at younger children so I wouldn't recommend it for that age group. They would probably be happy for an hour or two but then get disappointed when they realised there weren't any other rides.

I’m unsure about local discount, but I know they do something where you pay £50 for a season pass which might be worth it if you live close by :)
