The free play park at the Look Out is excellent. There is a separated area for the little ones, a main play area and then some great role play areas. I'd have loved to have played in the fort as a child :-)

Thank you so much for your lovely review. So glad to hear you had a great day. We are looking at ways to improve the parking with the Crown Estate as it is used by lots of people. Hope to see you again.

We enjoyed a day out here with the children. Lots of different areas with hands on activities to explore. Great for all ages . Outside there are play areas and tables for picnics. There is plenty of parking, toilets and a cafe.

Right adjacent to a truly horrible traffic interchange, this park can hardly be called quite, nor is the air fresh. the Discovery Centre is adequate, but not cheap.
