This is an off the radar visiting centre. Small but big enough car park. Very informal. Met with a very pleasant guy who offers you the best coffee I've ever had. You get to wander round the small garden and a look round an old...More

Can be fun. Involves a bit of walking and if the sun is out on a day the trades aren't blowing a bit, can be very warm. Moves at a good pace and there are things kids can do along the way. If the 7 year old gets bored easily, may just do that. The 10 year old will have a ball.
