Visitor feedback "Excellent value for money, we could have stayed longer as there's so much to do. The children and adults in our party thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable."

Our standard ticket price includes a donation of at least 10%. As a charity we rely on the support of our visitors more than ever in these challenging times.

If you are happy to pay this donation and say ‘yes to Gift Aid’ when prompted, we can claim money from the UK government’s Gift Aid scheme.

If you would prefer not to, please opt to ‘buy tickets without donation’ below.
