Attraction details
Owner description: A family-friendly museum on a peaceful riverside site with friendly farm animals, working watermill and interactive displays. Explore fields and woodland walks, join in daily demonstrations and activities, and let the kids go wild in playgrounds, pedal carts and trampolines. Take a trip by tractor, ride the narrow-gauge railway, explore the museum, or bounce around in the indoor soft play area. There is lots to see and do at Almond Valley indoors and out.

“A grand day out.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I love taking my grandchildren here. There is so much of interest. And they learn a bit of history whilst enjoying themselves. There is a nice cafe if you want a snack, and also plenty of picnic areas if you bring your own packed lunch. The children loved the wee train and the tractor ride. There is a great soft play area as well. My personal favourite is the Iron Age camp site.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is an excellent venue for toddlers, nursery and primary age children. It also has things that teens can enjoy as well. It is reasonably priced and cafe is good too. It has indoor and outdoor areas and is also a safe environment

“Fantastic place to go with kids”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Went here for a young lady 8th birthday.
What a great place to go lots and lots to do easy spent 4 hrs here.
The only let down I found was the train and tractor fee.
After paying for a family of 8 then to pay another 16 pound for a ride on a train and a ride on the tractor to which is unavoidable with children is a little unfair.

But overall a great day out

“Great day out”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Great place for little ones. Lots to do and see. Used Tesco clubcard vouchers so it becomes a very cheap day out. My three year old loved it so I think we will be back a lot
