  • We enjoy strolling around the park with the family. The children love the extensive range of activities, the bouncy pillow is a particular favourite but there are so many adventure playgrounds and other things to do as well. The dinosaurs are really pretty good too and we always go say hello to them. There are plenty of benches for picnics. We've not used the cafe, though it always seems popular, but have bought plenty of ice creams. The train is fun (costs £1 per person) too, and if that's not enough there's also a farm with a good range of animals who love to be fed (feed available from the admissions building)! All in all, easily a full day out, and to be recommended.
  • It’s such a good day out but I wish the entry wasn’t so expensive. Really good adventure playground, long walk around the lake and sand pits. The camp site looks great too and you get free entry if you stay there.
