What a wonderful experience In Light II was at the weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed the laser and accompanying audio show. Well organised event. We've not been for a while and the facilities have been updated with a new entrance, shop and cafe.

This gallery has very good temporary exhibitions plus an interesting selection of regular exhibits. Went today to see the Quentin Blake exhibition which was amazing. Visit slightly spoiled by being overcharged in the cafe. We were charged over £16 for two sandwiches and two teas....More

Spent the whole afternoon walking the grounds around the lake, taking a light lunch then viewing the exhibitions. Please go before The Lost Words and the Quentin Blake exhibitions finish in December. Not just child friendly but positively welcoming. The catering is rather slow but...More
