Really Glad you and your son enjoyed your visit. We've got plenty of other events coming up for Christmas and next year too. I've passed on your positive comments to the staff who helped deliver that morning. We hope to see you again. More

Very good service from volunteer staff who accommodated our needs and kept the children well informed and amused. A whole day was not too long especially if the weather is good and you can use the grounds. There is a classroom as well with Tudor related activities.

I took my children to see an animal man and for a special event called Teddy Bear's Picnic where the children got to put their teddy on... More
