You can even help feed the Penguins at 1.00pm for £1 donation (subject to availability).

4. Burn off energy in the parklands

Little ones can get a little stir crazy during the holidays so why not set them free and watch them run around over 160 acres of beautiful parklands! The stunning gardens are carefully tended by a creative team of gardeners who make every corner of the park a joy to visit.

5. Get tickets from just £9.50!

So you might be thinking “well that is all very well and good, but how much will it cost me?” Well, a day out for a family of four will come in at under £50 when you book online.
