Had a great time here exploring the caves. The tour takes 30 mins. You can't take prams or push chairs due to stairs. A whole day is advised, especially if you have children. £19 per adult.

lots of stuff to do ,great for somewhere to go on a wet day , good honest fun . slightly unusual mix of themes (witchesdinosaurs/circus/pirates) but the kids love it , cafe quite expensive but overall worth a visit
