Play area so busy on school holiday but that’s what you expect. More suitable for younger children but they all seem to love it. Spent a fortune with entry lunch and drinks. Food ok but didn’t like the tea, too weak for me, coffee ok.

Really interesting- everyone was really friendly and we got to see a stick of Hunstanton rock made from start to finish. That alone was worth the £3.50!

Loved seeing how the rock is made and getting to make your own stick. Enjoyed seeing the biscuits and chocolate being made too. Little plates of sweets etc for you to try was a nice treat. Only a small place but cheap to get in,...More

Deffo worth it! The tour is about an hour but they have a play place at the end and it's about 2 hours or so per play, the car park is huge and plenty of room, our kids love it and to be fair so do we!
