Totally agree with vdubman (24/2/12). The LEGO Mania event is uttter pants. We went last Saturday (25th Feb) and queued for 30 minutes to get in. Woefully poor display/activities and completely lacking in imagination. You literally could do better setting something up at home in...More

love looking around the old cars and buildings the victorian school and the period dress up (no extra charge) make for some great photos been here a few times also love the war time sweet shop where you can buy an old coin at reception...More
