Did the honey/bee tour and ginger making tour. Bee one was educational and showed how hives work and how colonies live. Ginger tour allowed us to see ginger production line from overhead. Kids enjoyed train trip and other ride.

Good family attraction with nice gardens and walks. Highlights are the bee talks and the train ride. Food ok with staff knowledgeable about gluten free and allergies. Kids will love the gingerbread man ride which is a smaller version of disneys small world. Recommended.

We went there on a wet day & the train was not working. Which is one of the main attractions. Not really that much to do. Quite expensive for what you get. They could do with more indoor activities.

The gardens are beautiful and the entry is free, there is a charge for the train and boat. There is plenty to see and buy however I do not recommend the ice cream. It is a very nice place to visit.

I took my baby cousin here with the family, so much to see and keep the kids entertained from the river ride (reminded me of Disneys 'small world' ride) to the train ride full of historic facts. Lots of shopping venues for souvenirs and try the Ginger beers or Ginger rum for the adults 😉their ice cream is amazing also!!!!
