If you are in the Aylesbury area and enjoy Roald Dahl and his marvellous creations at all, then this is an absolute must. Full of brilliant things and activities that are a true tribute to such a marvellous author

If I could have another day out there I would take it, even if I was offered a chocolate cake if I didn't take it. Review by my six year old son, word for word

Small Gallery alongside the Bucks Museum but you have to pay to get in. Took an 8yr old to visit, who knew his Roald Dahl but exhibits didn't seem to interest him despite a bit of prodding from some helpful staff. Some of the exhibits...More
