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.

Almond Valley Heritage Centre is a good place to take young children for a day out. The children can experience and get close to animals allowing them to learn from a young age. The small cafe is well equipped and can cater for most pallets.
