The second time of visiting for us and just love it. It is also a photographers dream. If you are in the vicinity it is well worth a visit. It always seems to be freezing when we have visited so wrap up warm.

Wasn't able to book on line so paid at the gate. Slightly more expensive but didn't mind that. Then the extra £2.50 for parking. Okay. So the first thing we arrive at are lots of "traveller-style" fairground rides. I hear the horse carousel creaking so...More
