Especially when you have 2 dogs in tow and it's a brisk early start albeit any season. So tranquil and full of the delights of nature.

We visited for enchanted parks which was magical on a cold, dark, winters night. The park itself it large and well laid out. Great for spending the afternoon with kids.

Visited this attraction on Saturday, our second year, what a disappointment less lights and inter action, some features where so small 4 or 5 people around it and no one else could see. Very poor certainly not worth the money won't be coming next year.

There is free parking, disabled and electric vehicle parking. It does get busy at peak times and sometimes people park on the verge of road and grass.
