Thank you so much for your lovely review despite the wet weather. There is definitely more upstairs including our new Design, Create and Test Lab which your 9 year old would love. Hope to see you again over the summer.

A cross between outdoor play and woods with a small science museum, this is a great place to take young children. The outdoor area has masses of space, a cafe and lots of seating, whilst having differing age appropriate areas nicely enclosed for safety. This...More

Great place for outdoors activities. Great MTB trails, lots of activities for the kids. Café is quite nice and surprisingly not overpriced. Haven't tried go Ape yet though.

Bracknell Forest is a lovely spot for a stroll. There are lots of different paths you can take and this is a popular spot for cyclists and dog walkers. We took the camera and snapped a few lovely shots.
