I was virtually forced to go and see this as I find these attractions usually a way of extracting large amounts of money, for little return. Imagine my surprise to find that I enjoyed virtually every moment of it. Don't miss it!

Loved our visit the theatre show was brilliant and made our visit, the exhibition itself was good but quite small, glad we saw show as well as exhibition. Lovely souvenirs in the shop as well.

Great little exhibition. Was a little sceptical about how much the kids would like this, but was very well done and rarely for this type of thing, not at a rip off price. Definitely worth a visit, especially when avoiding the rain!

Absolutely! We are in the beautiful Lake District in the small village of Bowness so a walk can start straight from our door!

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. It is hard to predict how busy we will be as it depends on a number of factors. We are often particularly busy when it is raining. However, Fridays are traditionally not quite as busy as... More
