  • My 3year old daughter LOVED it!! I've been a couple of times with her now, and she doesn't look any less bored than the first time I went. There are many interactive toys to get hands-on with, as well as a number of activities and sessions to take part in,running both during term time and holidays. I took my daughter to the toddler group, walking-4yrs old. This group gets booked up pretty quick so if you want to go, it's better to attempt booking Monday morning, after 10am , for that weekend!
  • A magical journey across history for play. Like walking down a thousand different memory lanes. A delightful collection. Highly recommend. Note: at the moment the cabinets need a spruce in the inside - but I hope it doesn't ruin your visit :)
