    Fantastic place to go for a day out or even for just a couple of hours. You only have to pay for the car park (£2.50) so it is an incredibly cheap trip out! We’ve been taking our little boy there since he was about 18 months old and he loves the aeroplanes and helicopters. There is also a great interactive area for children. Highly recommended!!
