I visit regularly to see the free nature and landscape photographic exhibitions held here. My only complaint is that the heating is VERY inadequate!

I visited twice in a week with friends to the cafe. Food was delicious and beautifully presented (and not too expensive). Members of staff are friendly and helpful too! Lots of parking, inexpensive and interesting with plenty of exhibitions etc which are often free!
