    The tour and museum were great. Callum our guide was informative and funny. Rob was also great.

    We ate in the Red Cafe. Really good quality food.

    All the staff we came across were warm and welcoming. We really enjoyed our day and it was good value for money

    Was using the car park for the Coronation Street Experience next door and realised it was free entrance. So glad we took a look around. Lovely museum, interesting stories we should all be reminded of, and a breathtaking piece… a section of the World Trade Tower.. made us stand in silence for a long time.

    I thought 2 hours was not long enough really, we brought our 4.5 yr. old Grandson waited in a que for a ride for 20 minutes and a car had been taken off for maintenance, so we were told the wait would be approx. 40 minutes so decided to come back later. it was half term so busy as expected.

    I did think it was a little tired needed a bit of refurb and TLC in some areas some of the interaction things did not work we pressed buttons but nothing happened? soft play he enjoyed then another que for the merlin ride would be better if the rides seated 4 so both could go on with him. The best thing was the 4D film experience that was thoroughly enjoyed by us all that was the best thing.

    I do think Adult tickets should be reduced as it must be expensive for a family and not much for the adults to do, especially those who are only going in a supervisory role. So not much time for actually building with the Lego as we had to get back to que again for the ride we had previously waited ages to go on at the beginning. could not fault the staff at all everyone was friendly and helpful.

    Our Grandson enjoyed it as he was too young to notice tatty bits ,he wasn't big enough to do some things like the climbing wall and another experience were there was an age restriction....Dont think we will be rushing back to this Manchester venue may try Legoland Windsor in the summer but not to the Manchester one.

    Came here recently on a very wet Saturday afternoon and managed to grab a table in one of the outside covered areas.

    Being able to browse and order food via the app is very handy and saves q’ing. Service was very quick also and the food we ate from all vendors was quality.

    There isn’t as many vendors as other similar food markets, however the atmosphere and quality of food available here proves ‘quality over quantity’ !

    Took a walk round in summer and thoroughly enjoyed the lay out and the variety of plants.
    In summer me and my friend particularly enjoyed the eucryphia plant that was swarming with bees.
    We went back in October and there were still some flowers on it.
    Loads of wonderful autumnal colours on the variety of trees

    Attended for green days gig

    Utter chaos outside as no signs to say where to go so just queues everywhere and staff giving contradicting information

    Once in, highly organised. Reasonable prices for food and drink. Great view of stage. Wouldn’t bother with seated if I attended there again as just too far away for me. Attached hotel rooms have balconies looking over so would be great. But again too far away for me
