Seems to be a Workplace which just happens to be open to the public during working hours. Hardly an "attraction" in this case. No indication on the website (unless you download the brochure) of opening hours. Surely any tourist attraction should cater for weekend visitors...More

Free entrance, just across the canal from Woking's pedestrian center.

Visited by the local schools the site has proved very popular especially with younger children. It's a good rainy day activity with parking below the site and a few minutes walk away from the Light box and Woking town centre.

We popped in for a look as we were visiting the Light Box just over the canal. The public can only go around the reception area where the four exhibits are but they are worth a look. Great for any kids as they are interactive...More
