A regular stop for many coach passengers and independent travellers. A large restaurant offers a reasonable selection of self-service food which helps if time is short. Good selection of gift shops also. Plenty of parking available.

My beloved wife visited here as a child & remembers a really short stay. Think we would have emulated that apart from a walk through The Courtship Maze. Had to laugh at all the padlocks. Even expected to pay to walk round the wedding chapel/...More
