This is a great place to bring your grandchildren, with plenty for them to enjoy and also to learn. You can bring a picnic which you can eat in designated indoor/outdoor areas, but there's also a superb cafe.

Lots of colourful interactive exhibits which delight most under ten's. The challenge is to provide activities for older children.
