All the staff put in so much effort! We arrived and handled a... More

Took the granddaughter, aged 5, last Sunday. A wet, miserable morning so wasn't expecting very much but wow was I surprised. Had a fantastic time and the granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it too. The food in the cafe was excellant and reasonably priced. Initially thought the £8.95 for the kid was a bit steep but very quickly changed my mind. Being... More

When in Durham a visit to the Castle is a must. If you are lucky and it's sunny you will enjoy the beauty of the building. Plan at least 2 hours..

Visited today with my 5 year old son and baby daughter...absolutely fantastic day out. My son loved the whole experience from start to finish ( including a couple of extra hours feeding the animals and soft play area). I found the set up great considering I had a large pushchair in tow. The day flowed well and was very organised.... More

We visited the winter wonderland last weekend and from start to finish we enjoyed every minute! The staff were faultless and so helpful - they remained in character all day and made the day extra special for the children. My 6 and 9 year old remained fascinated and enthralled all day and loved joining in with the elves. Compared to... More

On our way home back down South, we decided to make a special stop and treat the children to a day out at Adventure Valley. Our family that we had just visited in Newcastle highly recommended the Winter Wonderland experience, and after hearing about their amazing visit recently we just had to go and try it for ourselves!

This place has so many childhood memories tied to it. The puppet shows were fun, there were plenty of activities on each day, the food was great and overall everyone loved going. Feeding the swans there, falling asleep on the tractor ride, getting to help out in the puppet show... it was my favorite place as a kid. There's so... More
