Small cafe, good snacks and reasonable prices. Free parking and very good under 5s play area. Our 3 year old grandson loves it and enjoys feeding the ducks and looking at the boats too.

A really clean and nice relaxing place to visit, we went on a school day so it was quite quiet, I really enjoyed myself and I never thought I would if I'm honest

Small museum but worth a visit. We missed going a boat trip as they were not operating until the week after we visited. We will be back for the trip. Had lunch which was very nice and reasonable cost.

Peaceful, interesting, nice little playground, nice cafe. Really worth a visit for all the family. A lot of effort is being put into this place, worth supporting.

Quite a modern building, exhibits inside are acceptable but i think need to be somewhat more in depth. Easy access to outside area and docks. It is worth a visit. Cafe and toilet facilities, both clean and well maintained. alson a Wildlife Walk.
