Newest Review: ... that the rather thin guide book which you are offered at the ticket office will set you back £5.00! (and there are no price indications visible until you come to pay - so beware). Those unfortunate enough not to have discount entry options are going to start feeling their pockets lightened quite quickly: - £11 each for adult entry; £30 for a family ticket - £1.60 for a pot of tea; £1.75 for ... more

Family tickets were a slightly more reasonable £26, and if it is ... Read the complete review
