A unique exhibition based on optical illusion. Witness balls rolling uphill in the antigravity room, visibly grow and shrink in the Ames room and be amazed by our interactive optical illusion exhibits, artwork and sculptures, as well as the hologram gallery!

Stumbled upon it during a rainy day in the lakes. For a few quid it was a laugh and the shop sold some interesting stuff too

We recently visited The Puzzling Place as a family with one small child, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Visited with 2 young children. What an absolute hidden gem. Throughly enjoyed by the kids and adults. It cost under £15 for the family - A bargain in my opinion. Don’t leave Keswick without visiting.

We visited The Puzzling Place on a very wet and rainy day. We went with the kids (12 and 6). The kids really enjoyed it, and it entertained them for about 45-60 mins. Good value for money.

Wanted to visit here for ages and wasn’t disappointed. Spent the day laughing and being generally amazed. Great way to spend a couple of hours - recommended!

This is great for both kids and adults with enquiring minds. Reasonable entrance fee and a great place to while away a rainy day. We visited before, when the kids were in their early teens, and were equally fascinated. The only thing we'd say now...More

An ideal wet day activity. Entrance is inexpensive and worth it for an amusing 45 minutes or so. Going with other people for amusement is recommended.

If you look on the website at the FAQ it does say that well behaved dogs on leads are allowed.
