My partner suggested we have a look at this place because we had never visited before. I was not sure what to expect, but I was certainly not disappointed. This is a re-created Edwardian village that really depicts how life was in settler times in...More

This was full of unexpected surprises. I wish we could have had more time there. Reasonably priced for all that was on offer. It covers a large area so wear comfy shoes. Very small children would get bored as it is so spread out. The...More

We went on 2 January which is a public holiday so it was very quiet and some areas did not have any staff manning them. That was OK as there was still a bit to look at. We enjoyed our time in the Train exhibit...More
