We were delighted to discover this brilliant place, for both adults and children of varying age. Doubt there's anything that hasn't been said in previous reviews, although I suspect that the Electric car charger might not have been mentioned before.

A little gem tucked away on the outskirts of Luton airport. Lovely gardens, play area, museums with interactive exhibits and a café. Lots of seating around the gardens to just unwind and relax. The kids love it. And best of all, its free entry.

Well worth a visit with the children, take a picnic and enjoy the beautiful gardens and let the kids run off steam on the play area and through the gardens.
