Visited on Good Friday, really interesting place. We will all be back when the weather is better and we have more time to explore more. Our Granddaughter (11) was really impressed and asked to go back again, which is a really good recommendation.

What a wonderful day out, capturing the children’s imagination and leaving the adults speechless with the complexity of the work involved in some of the projects. The knife angel truly is breathtaking. We shall return.
