We visited Cornwall in November and looked for ideas out of the cold wind. We eventually found Flambards , however, the signs are poor. You need to head for Salisbury Supermarket and the sign for Flambards is just behind it. The Victorian Village is a real delight and the Britain in the Blitz exhibit equally as interesting. There was plenty... More

We visited in half term with a family of 6. £130 to get in but we used Tesco vouchers so it was free. I would have been very disappointed if I had paid. The rides were okay but for that much money to get in then to have to pay extra for the go carts and some of the other... More

We visited here while on holiday with shearings. It's got an indoor museum type exhibition. An authentic victoriana village. Plus battle of Britain/the blitz war themed exhibits. Concord cockpit. Spitfire cockpit. Gift shop. Cafe and the theme park for the youngsters it's a fun place for all ages. Well worth the visit only 8 miles from Newquay.

Something for everyone to do, although the rides for smaller children took a bit of finding to start with. The Victorian Village and The Blitz exhibition were far better than we expected, worth the entrance fee for those alone. We were a family ranging from 18 months to 70 years and we all had a good day, even went back... More

We have been here 5 times now. Every time we discover something different in the "Victorian England" section. It puts other attractions of this type in the shade. We took two friends to see it this time. They were mesmerised and could not believe that there was any where like it. If you want to look it up and see... More

We went for the fireworks. Decided to go till the afternoon as fireworks were at 8pm, would have been better if these were at 7pm. It's a nice cheap theme park for the younger children, the indoor museums were great. The restaurant we ate at was ok, bit overpriced. I would go back if there was an event on.

Attended on Wednesday, was lovely and quiet due to poor weather. Was told we had re-entry for the next 7 days, however later found out the park was closing for the winter 3 days later. Staff friendly, park clean. Only complaint is that there is very little for the shorter younger kids, in the off season would be good for... More

Something for everyone in this park. A Victorian village that takes you back in time is amazingly lifelike. A trip through flight, a wiz round some dresses and cakes of the past, as well as a small but great theme park of rides from a Victorian merrygoround to modern rides. A good value day out.

Very expensive £35 for one adult and one child for what is on offer, the majority of the rides have not changed in the last 10 years, the whole place needs a lick of paint and a good tidy up. Incredibly disappointed.
