    The access to all the aircraft including the flight decks is excellent. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. Will be visiting again soon.

    This long beach is served by a number of car parks and is a beautiful place to visit for a walk, a sit to watch the world go by or to treat yourself to a coffee or snack or a meal from the eateries on offer just behind the walkway.

    This is so cute and quintessentially British. It's not too far to walk from Harbor Hotel. The pub does a very decent lunch too.

    Took a trip across the inlet on this ferry to get to the coast. Only took about 10 mins and it worked really well for us.

    A lovely little family theme park, clean and great value for money. The soft play is clean and the food reasonably priced. We read reviews stating the place was outdated but we didn’t think so. We have kids with SEN and found the staff to be very helpful and understanding. I’d really recommend a visit and cannot complain about anything really. The characters walking around the park were great also. Was a great visit and addition to our holiday.

    Brilliant place inside and out in the gardens with the fairy houses and large dinosaur statues. Small museum, friendly staff.
    Recommend that you find out when activities are taking place and book,as we got there just as a story telling activity was going on and we hadn’t booked.
    Great way to spend a couple of hours or more, lovely little tea shop and souvenir shop on the premises.

    We took our children to snowtrax, it was something different that they haven’t done and they loved it! The adventure park behind was a added bonus too, spent hours there, plenty to keep them active and entertained.
    What I would say let this place down is the fact it’s run by kids. We were greeted by a lovely lady who was very professional on arrival but that’s where it ended. When we were picking the childrens helmets one young man who was staff stood right next to us and said to another colleague ‘hopefully it’s not busy where it’s been raining an know one will turn up’. We thought this was off. We arrived 15 minutes early as advised on website for the safety brief except we were stood waiting until it was our time slot, on the dot, which was annoying when all these young staff were just stood around clearly not wanting to be there, the safety talk ate into our time, which is only half hour, more annoyingly the young girl over seeing ringoes that morning of the 25/8/22 tried cutting the time short by 3 minutes, when you add up the delayed start time cos of the safety brief this was over 5minutes gone!! It’s not on. All the young staff seemed to have a really bad and complacent attitude. Which sadly does demote the place especially it like ours it’s a bit of a day out with excited children. This aside it was a nice few hours In the outdoors and more importantly the kids really enjoyed it.

    We went for a walk which took a couple of hours. Lovely place and parking free. Visitor centre sadly not open when we went. Would happily visit again.

    The iconic old Christchurch Castle is near the old church and Norman house by the Mill Stream so you can visit all these at one go.

    There’s lots of pubs and eatery around or pack your own picnic lunch if it’s a nice sunny day to be out. There’s no shelter so do visit only if weather is good.

    Recommended for family and anyone visiting Christchurch in Dorset, England.

    A lovely sandy beach with walks in both directions. Ideal for children. There was an area where dogs were allowed and another where they weren't so somewhere for everyone.to enjoy. Parking at Steamer Point or at Highcliffe Castle.

    Came across the farm shop on a drive through Hampshire, had previously not been aware of it. Just popped in for a few things so unable to review PYO. Farm shop was really well stocked with some interesting varieties of vegetables - very tempting to try several of them. Uncertain whether it was organic probably but assume not as couldn't see it stated anywhere. Bought some anyway! Understand that the eggs are free range and brought several. Prices are very good.

    Brought some friends to walk here last weekend and the weather was lovely hence we had an enjoyable time going through the ruins.

    There’s lots of pubs and eateries nearby with a mill stream that stretches through to the old Christchurch Church and Castle.

    You can lay a lovely picnic spread and enjoy the idyllic surrounding on a sunny spring or summer day.

    Recommended if you’re visiting Christchurch. It’s near the high street and public transport or car park spaces aplenty.
