“Such a beautiful place to visit if you appreciate ancient relics and old buildings, as well as fascinating art. Sumerian clay work, Anglo-Saxon jewelry, and an Egyptian mummy have captured me. These objects are priceless and older than many would believe. The art is mind-blowing. Especially the Lucifer statue. There is much more to see. Give yourself time to enjoy this place. Savour it.” – Cartoony C.

“Such a lovely place to walk around with the family and an amazing variety of plants, trees, and flowers to look at; especially loved the cacti and succulents near the exit. Sat and had a lovely picnic outside and there are free-roaming peacocks and peahens and even a baby one!

“Went to the Sea Life centre on July 21st with my partner. Hadn’t been in years it was just as good as I remembered. Social distancing markings were everywhere it was unfortunate that the majority of people weren’t following them. We had to ask multiple groups of people to keep their distance. Staff were great and it’s a fantastic day out. Value for money.” – Carys W.

“Super cool place for small kids ages 1-6. Mine really loved it they played so much we stayed till closing. The outdoor part is super nice but needs little maintenance. The futuristic section is also very interesting, even for grown-ups. It would be very nice if we could get inside on some of the vehicles on the lowest floor. The robot arms working like in real car factory were very impressive. A little red light, where the welding happens, would have been cool.” – Anton K.
