It's kind of small but so is the staff so you don't notice. Had more dinosaurs than you'd think, no real ones though. Surrounded by hills but so is the rest of Great Britain. The two bouncers out front should be fired though.

If this place had been around 25 year ago you'd have had to drag me out kicking and screaming! Definitely aimed more at kids though younger ones might maybe get a bit scared at some of the displays (one really screaming today). Some unusual choices...More

Hi Linda, thanks for your enquiry. All visitors pay the child price of £6.95 as we don't charge extra for adults. The entry price also includes free unlimited re-entry for months. All the best, Toby T Rex.
