We visited Conkers on a lovely sunny day hoping to have a great day out. I feel we were freshly let down.
First impression were poor when we were pointed to the half term activities on a old flip chat Stand. We then went into the discovery centre and wandered around some of of date and fairly knackered exhibits. Some of the attraction were too scary for our three year old. We then went outside for a wander around the woods. This was ok. But you could do the same in your local forest.
The place just feels old and under invested in. I get the impression it was great when it opened but really has not been updated since. Snack bars were closed and just left gathering dust especially in the waterside area.
We went to the dean ponies. Thus was laughable. The two ponies were being walked. Up and down at the rear of a building past rubbish and old bits of equipment. Considering the space it must be the worst place possible to do this. Owl week consisted of a table with paper plates tissue paper and glue. That was it.
The whole experience was weird and disappointing. First nearly £30 I expected a full day out. We managed a couple of hours.
