We visited the park with our six year old grandchildren on the strength of the web site. The place described is nothing like the reality. It's true, there is a play barn and cafe, and there is a go cart trac. Sadly, there is only...More

We are not sure whether to laugh or cry about this one! Despite the fact that our website, Facebook, advertising and Notices all clearly state that the Park is undergoing a re-branding and that the animals are being removed to make way for an Equestrian...More

I am really surprised by some of the nasty reviews of this place. People who care more about some dust and gaffer tape than their kids having fun is strange. We came to the Dick Whittington Farm Park expecting a play area and some animals...More

The staff recognise this visitor. The children seemed to have a great time but this gentleman complained bitterly about the quality of the burgers and ham. We do not make the burgers or ham, they come in from a reputable supplier. We merely cook them...More

The Management strongly reject these comments. The toilets are immaculately cleaned every morning and, whilst some tissue may fall on the floor during the course of the day, they are certainly not unclean. The smell of cooking comes from the kitchen but there is a...More

It is well known now that the Park’s main attraction is its massive indoor Play Barn. A painting programme is in place and there have been some fantastic murals done by a friend of Banksy. We are not sure how you can describe this as...More

The animals are not the primary reason you would visit this farm park; it is the indoor play area which is excellent. Extracting the children to look at the animals proved challenging! Excellent value for money with a good cafe.
