This place is really excellent value. It is very interesting with amazing craftmanship on display with the fully scaled-down models. There is a lift so no need to worry about stairs.

Our WI had lunch here yesterday. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. The food was awful! The chips were soggy and we asked for our quiche to be served hot. It was not even warm. Very expensive for the bad quality of food.

I’ve travelled around a lot, but this is the most overcharged i have ever felt! £6.25 for an extremely mediocre tuna ‘crunch’ baguette!!! It was soggy, not crunchy. Add in a small bottle of sparkling water and a cookie, and my lunch was nearly £10!...More
