A family-friendly museum on a peaceful riverside site with friendly farm animals, working watermill and interactive displays. Explore fields and woodland walks, join in daily demonstrations and activities, and let the kids go wild in playgrounds, pedal carts and trampolines. Take a trip by tractor, ride the narrow-gauge railway, explore the museum, or bounce around in the indoor soft play area. There is lots to see and do at Almond Valley indoors and out.

OMG. What a place. Only gets better with every visit. There always seems to be something new happening whenever we go. Has been around since my kids were small and now take my grandchildren.

I visited here with my daughter and partner and it was brilliant. Lots of activities such as trampolines, bouncy castles, soft plays to keep the wee one entertained. The animal section was good and the meet the animals area is fantastic and my daughter loved it. Will definitely visit again!!

I hold a corporate pass for here via my work social club, am always lending it out to staff to visit with their families and finally managed a trip there myself. I can see why they all love it! Lots to see and opportunities to handle some of the smaller animals, guinea pigs, rabbits, and even cockroaches, ugh! It’s the... More
