Visited with my 2 children today, had quite high expectations for this place after reading reviews but was sadly left a little underwhelmed. We paid to do the tour, which was a quiz in which you had to find the answers as you went round....More

This place is straight out of Harry Potter and brilliant! If there's anything magical you need, they will have it! They even have the real santa!

Visited today and it entertained my 11yr old Grandson for over an hour. The quiz kept him busy as we went through the different rooms. Exhibits are good and detailed storyline. Staff were friendly and took time to check his quiz answers.
