Always worth a visit. Hampshire in olden days. Also special exhibitions. A very nice cafe. Just a bus ride from the centre of Basingstoke or large free car park on site.

It varies on which day you go. We went in a Friday and paid £25.50 for two seniors and a 5 year old. It's not cheap! But it's well done
