A family-friendly museum on a peaceful riverside site with friendly farm animals, working watermill and interactive displays. Explore fields and woodland walks, join in daily demonstrations and activities, and let the kids go wild in playgrounds, pedal carts and trampolines. Take a trip by tractor, ride the narrow-gauge railway, explore the museum, or bounce around in the indoor soft play area. There is lots to see and do at Almond Valley indoors and out.

I hold a corporate pass for here via my work social club, am always lending it out to staff to visit with their families and finally managed a trip there myself. I can see why they all love it! Lots to see and opportunities to handle some of the smaller animals, guinea pigs, rabbits, and even cockroaches, ugh! It’s the... More

It's been a while since we were last here, but it won't be long till we return. Almond Valley is always refurbishing and adding attractions: a play farm, bouncy castle, trampolines, go-karts, giant indoor sand pit, pedal tractors, indoor play mine, camera obscura, highland cow hoopla... New to us were the zip lines and the wooden sledge track. Sledges were... More

I was really surprised by this place. There is so much to see and do! The animas are well cared for, with lots of different information signs. I also liked that they had good explanations for their rules (for example why not to feed the ducks). LOADS of different play areas, the outdoor play areas are so imaginative and the... More

Visit Mill Farm regularly with the family (we have the annual membership) and it is such good fun. Loads for the kids to do, both inside and out, so it's not weather dependant!
