This is a really good day out with the kids, and for the price you can't go wrong. You take the train into the valley where there are train rides, crazy golf, canoeing, a cafe, indoor play and swings etc for the kids. This is...More

We were very disappointed with our visit and was expecting more! Good parts were that the train ride was enjoyable, however when you get to the main park it's mostly playground climbing frames. The indoor play carriage was disappointing as it contained a few plastic...More

We always stop here on our way into Cornwall. My children, now aged 11, 8 and 4 still enjoy it. The favourite part being the boating lake, rather than the trains. On our last visit, it was very busy, not seen it so busy before....More

Lappa Valley is just right for a day with preschoolers. Our son loved finding MORE play equipment tucked in every corner. The main site is smaller than you might expect but laid out in areas that feel spacious and open. It was really nice to...More

Attraction themed around small steam trains. It seemed pricey when buying the tickets but by the end of the day we felt it was very good value for money. Probably best for the under 10s which is an audience much neglected by many theme parks....More
