I've been here multiple times with my young kids and always find it utterly fascinating and quirky. It's a very hard place to define as there are so many different things here : a water fountain show, antique slot machines, rides for small kids, museums,...More

We had a good day going on the various rides and exploring the beautiful gardens but there were parts that my children found very scary. There are lots of Victorian attractions that are quite creepy that shocked them. The water ride was really good and...More

It's really hard to write a review of Watermouth Castle as it's like two separate days out. You get the nice castle and some heritage 'what life was like' elements, mixed in with some bizarre elements like a robot band and a bicycle museum. Then...More

I would highly recommend Watermouth Family Theme Park & Castle for ages 6 and under. Very clean, worth the admission price, food fairly priced and lots to keep the kids entertained for the full day!

The new Toboggan Ride will be ideal, also the tube slide, river ride, cooking pots and swing boats I would think she will enjoy. There is the fountain show, soft ball shooting canons, gnomeland and all of the castle... More
