Well I liked it - probably because it was a bit naff - and anything with an ageing bit of British rocket history rusting outside (Rolls-Royce engines!) gets my vote. The audio tour is pleasantly eclectic (listen out for the Abba cameo) - as it...More

The kids ages varying from 6-12 all found it very dificult and extremely boring. Only the short 5D cartoon and moonwalk were ok. The other cool stuff was only available if you are there on a 'specific mission' (abd costs a lot). The adults found...More
