What travellers are saying
- St Alban's Cathedral has been on both of our bucket lists for quite a while. We enjoyed a very moving Choral Eucharist service and we're still exploring this wonderful building 2 hours later. We would definitely return and recommendWritten 6 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Been going here since I was a child, great day overall but the dinosaur section is a bit out of control. The dinosaur noises are unbearably loud and annoying and the poor animals in the woodland section (reindeer, deer, foxes, wolves) have to listen to that all day every day. If the zoo is interested in being ethical it should turn these sounds right down or carry out some other interventions to block the noise for the poor things.Written 21 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- If you happen to visit Hatfield House, make sure you do not miss the guided tour of the Old Palace. Dermot is so passionate and descriptive that gives life to the old palace and transfers you to a past era like you are watching a live documentary. First time I leave a guided tour and I feel so enriched with knowledge and with a bigger love for British history. Thank you Dermot, we will be back!Written 4 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Did a experience day with drift limits with a friend for his birthday and I throughly enjoyed it!
Especially with a top man named Nick who was my instructor for the day. Made the day even better with his enthusiasm for cars and great communication since I am deaf.
Highly recommend this company for stag dos or birthdays or just a day out!
Did it on 1st of April and sorry for the late review!Written 19 November 2023
- Spent a fantastic couple of hours here on a random Wednesday in November. There's so much to see that I could have been longer. The volunteers are all really friendly and knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to spend time talking to them (even if it did nearly make me late home for tea!).
The little cafe is also great for a snack to keep you fortified during your visit 😁
Will be coming back!Written 15 November 2023
- Went here as I was exploring some villages in the Chilterns and happened to end up in Tring.Lovely museum,haven’t been here for 5 years and wanted to visit back so I did.It has loads of different species no matter whether it is part of the bird,fish or mammal family.Also incredible instillations too,there are so many of them in the gallery.Also the exhibitions were great and I love the turtle bit,very instagrammable and a great photo spot.It was also interesting to learn about the history of the museum too.I love the park that surrounds it.Also the toilets were exceptionally clean and the guy on the front desk was really friendly.It’s amazing that the museum is free admission,even if I had to pay for it I wouldn’t mind paying for it as it was so exceptional.Also great for kids too as they have loads of activities targeted towards kids which is great as sometimes kids can get bored quite easily in museums.Also there are seats available for older people which is lovely.There is a newly refurbished cafe on site too.Would highly recommendWritten 4 November 2023
- Awful parking but a magical little train ride (charming and wooded and just lovely) and a great play park - albeit the equipment a bit close together. Not to mention the splash park which is great but gets a bit hairy with the big kids. The river provided much interest for the 4 and 2 year olds and I almost wished we’d skipped the water park in its favour. Obviously great supervision and caution and hygiene should be observed around water - rivers/streams included!Written 11 September 2023
- Park is beautiful and we had lovely weather, however it was disappointing as a pedestrian to find it so poorly signposted. We never actually found the museum! The mosaic is amazing.Written 18 September 2023
- I am a believer in Hare Krishna and when I go I am always spoken to very nicely all the staff there are polite and always good to help out. I have donated money to this place and would recommend to anyone to go along. You can feed the cows, do some praying in the temple. There are always things to do inc Yoga and many courses.Written 17 November 2023
- An expansive estate with plenty of parking and lots of walking trails.
We went to see the bluebells at Dockey Wood on the other end of the road estate. The car park is very limited and can get very busy on a good day. We parked further ahead near Dockey Wood and then saw a patch of bluebells nearby before walking the one mile to the NT area, which had paid entry.
It’s a surreal experience walking through the beautiful bluebells.Written 19 June 2023
- We absolutely LOVE Willows Farm and we go for Xmas every year end of November. We also went for Easter this year which was not worth the high price So we now just stick with going for Xmas every year even though it cost £146 for 2 kids and 2 adults this year.
My kids absolutely love the Xmas event at Willows Farm….So much to do
The cuddly bear making is our favorite as the cuddly toys are very high quality and beautiful
We love the ginger bread decorating
Santa’s Toy Shop is great as they get to choose a toy
This year there was a new toy workshop where they made beautiful sleighs out of wood which is really cute.
Love the rides and the indoor soft play. Really good how there were staff on top of the big slides supervising the kids.
But the reason I have given it 4/5 stars this year is because the queue for Santa was too long. Waiting for a whole hour with 2 young kids for one hour is a nightmare and ruined the experience. Other kids in the queue were going crazy too. Our allocated slot to start the journey to see Santa was 11am but why was it so busy?? And then after that in the afternoon there was no queue at all! So why not spread it out all day rather than such a long queue all in the morning??? That’s ridiculous.
When we finally got to see Santa he didn’t even mention any of the information I had given them in advance even though we scanned our receipt to send the info to Santa before entering the room. So what was the point in that! Complete waste of my precious time!
More Positives: This time there were 2 big places open for eating which meant we were able to get seats in the soft play and eat whilst the kids played so I think that has improved from last time. We had the usual sausage rolls with drinks and doughnuts which is ok but at extortionate prices.
A chocolate Lolly is priced at £4.99 which is a complete rip off.
So to conclude, I recommend you extend the times people can see Santa as the long queue spoils the day for everyone. Other than that we LOVE Willows Farm and will be back again. Even my 9 yo is still into Willows Farm and the cuddly toys they get.
Highly recommend.Written 28 November 2023
- Pretty place to visit. Probably better to go in July. Lavender appeared to be coming to the end not very colourful. Sunflowers were beautiful, as was the view. A little overpriced, £7 entrance fee £4 a bag for lavender, £1 per sunflower. Nice ice cream the honey and lavender was lovely. Good farm shop was hoping for some lavender honey but they don't sell it. Would recommendWritten 20 August 2023
- A small but well-presented museum, focusing on the lives & times of the people who comprised the Roman Conquest of Britain. Their occupation lasted from AD 43 to AD 410, and the Verulamium Museum (named after the Roman town that was established southwest of what is now the English town of St Albans, Hertfordshire) offers insights into how those people lived & worked & built a community. The artifacts collected & displayed are varied & extensive, from everyday usage items to coins to large mosaic decorations to the remains of Roman citizens exhumed with their lead coffins. Surrounding those items are descriptions & depictions of the settlement & development of a Roman society in the area, with informative signage & mixed media displays to engage visitors of all ages. The facilities are well maintained, the staff is friendly, and the adjacent car park is very handy to visit the Museum as well as other sites around St Albans.
Our adult party members purchased combined entry tickets for the Verulamium Museum and the nearby Roman Theatre (a walk up the hill on St Michael's Street & across the A4147). The old Theatre site is more suited & presented to host the modern entertainment events scheduled there than to learning more about Roman Britain history. So we would recommend focusing your time & money on the Museum alone, then moving on to explore the rest of what St Albans town has to offer.Written 24 July 2023
- I would recommend this as a destination for families, friends and for those individuals curious about sculpture or Moore specifically, there is much here to stimulate conversations or absorb an individual. I went there with my partner and parents and we all had a wonderful time. The curation of Moores works is done very sympathetically to his process and the grounds that showcase his large works are truly inspiring. I would emphasise above all the positivity of the various staff, from the receptionists, guides and researchers (the archives were open the day we went) to the people working in the cafe they really could not have done more to make the visit comfortable and memorable. In short you really can’t go wrong here, I can’t wait to return with my children.Written 27 July 2023
