A great place to pass a couple of hours with the kids while in Woking. Great exhibitions throughout the year and some good children's workshops during the holidays. Try it!

We popped in to here for something to do. It was lovely to walk around, we bought a pass which allowed us full access. My favourite part was the history of Woking, I learnt some new things. The gift shop is rather expensive!
