The setting is lovely and this really is a major engineering achievement that gives a good day out. Shop and cafe are
also good.

Well worth a visit. Very interesting. Journey on the boat was great. The Santa trips are fabulous and well worth the money. Cafe a little pricey but nice food. Lovely gift shop to browse through. Walks are great and families can enjoy the play parks. Really good day out.
