Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Great value for money, ticket valid for a full year, didn't manage to do all attractions, so will be back. Fantastic ice cream in the village too. Lots of attractions are dog friendly, so top marks from me!

There are some steps further in the cave but there is an area to park pushchairs. Concrete paths throughout make it easy for pushchairs. When we went there last week, we saw visitors with pushchairs carry them up and down... More
