Easy to access from A1. Reasonable admission prices and choice of ticket categories. Families often choose to take car onto centre of course with a picnic for a fixed price per car rather than per person.

We attended the family day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We took a picnic and chairs. The kids activities were free and they didn’t really have to queue too much. Definitely recommend this as a family day out.
