    We did the RAID escape room experience at the Museum -£20 for a small family ticket (one adult, one 13 and one 9 year old), it was a lot of fun! There was something for every age. Amy, the guide (with long red hair - hope we got her name right!) was great, gave us a good briefing (in character as a “special agent”) and tips when we needed them. The game only lasts for 15 minutes but it’s intense and mentally challenging, and got everyone engaged. It was a good thing to do before we looked around the museum, which is really worth a visit - good cafe and great shop, too.

    Very nice paths to stroll around the lakes, cafe over priced but usually decent food and drinks. A family of 4 can cost a small fortune for a quick snack and drinks.

    The LION KING IS A MUST SEE SHOW ABSOLUTELY AMAZING BRILLIANT there are not enough complimentary words and the Bradford Alhambra is simply one of the best theatres in the north

    A treat for Gentleman Jack fans, but well worth a visit even if you've never heard of Anne Lister. Shibden Hall is unusual and very atmospheric, and the outbuildings have a wealth of interesting displays. The staff are great and obviously love the place as much as the visitors do.

    A lovely day out for little children. We took our 2yr and 9m old and it was fab for them both. There's a little miniature train to start you off, and a really good bouncing pillow. The playground is fab, very clean, brand new equipment and set out really nicely. Toilets and cafe were good. The Shed was a bit disappointing, not really much in there to play with. The train ride was brilliant. The driver showed my little boy how it worked and everything. It was a quiet ride so we could put the pushchair in the next carriage. Facilities at Shelley were good. Nice play area. The Turntable dessert parlour was a bit of a let down, I was expecting a bit more, and they had no coffee and limited soft drinks.

    I think £9.95 per adult was a bit pricey considering we are all there for our children rather than ourselves, but otherwise definitely recommend it!

    This is a great day out! We went yesterday and it was really beautiful. I'd recommend going this time of year (May) because there are lambs everywhere, geese with their goslings and beautiful bluebells in the woods. The sculptures themselves were great and there was a variety of different artists and styles, with informative signs next to them explaining the ideas behind the sculptures and their history. We didn't have time to see everything so I'm looking forward to my next visit :) I'd also recommend stopping for a cup of coffee on the balcony of the cafe by the entrance, as the views are stunning.

    Excellent for children, couples and families. Very clean and sanitary and still requires mask usage in public areas. There was plenty to do and experience

    Gem of a place not been for a few years, so revisited today. Lots to look at and information to take in. The staff are only too happy to explain things in more detail to you, ask and you shall learn.
    The blacksmith deserves a mention to himself. Really lovely genuine chap who loved what he does, so obvious to see. He explained everything he was doing and why, so much knowledge and skill.
    The museum is free, but please donate if you can. Help keep these places open for future generations

    This is the second time I have had skiing lessons at Snozone, and learned a lot in my first day session. Things really motored on today, with great help from Ben who shared his knowledge in such an engaging way and filled the group with enthusiasm. Looking forward to more time on the slope - and I’ll be back for the next lesson soon, cheers Ben!
    Facilities are accessible, well organised and plenty of discount schemes available to help you keep booking in :)

    This is a beautiful piazza, especially on a sunny day. I couldn’t believe I was in the pennines in the North of England and not in continental Europe. Very photogenic with many indie shops and eateries etc. to explore.

    Temple Newsam grounds are vast and beautiful. You can arrive here and take in the beautiful grounds, walk around and have a picnic or you can pay to go see the animals at Home Farm and have lunch at the cafe.
    Home Farm isn't what I remember is as a kid. There used to be so much more animals walking around that you could interact with but I guess with Health and Safety, things are different. There's not much point in walking the tarmac path around the park as there doesn't seem to be any animals there anymore which is a shame.

    Wow . The park has been renovated and the playground is fabulous. I took our older children and we all had fun. We love Beaumont Park and anyone that hasn't been it is worth the visit. I know people keep mentioning toilets..there is some and I am sure they are working towards opening these but people must understand the restrictions that have been in place for covid...I don't think putting yhem a score of 2 is fair just because of the toilets... .there is the town centre a short journey away. Not ideal but this park is amazing...well done for keeping it beautiful 👌

    So often with National Trust properties its the volunteers which transforms an old building into living history. Nostell has remarkably knowledgeable guides who have the stories associated with the exhibits. Many of these are priceless and can engage your interest as well as admiration. In addition there is a lovely walk through the wood down to the lake - just accessible by mobility scooter. Plenty of parkland to explore as well.

    I visited Hardcastle Crags on the way the the Yorkshire Dales, and it was a great spot. However, on arriving on a sunny-ish Sunday afternoon at about 2:30pm, signs on the way in to the Midgehole car park stated it was full. If I'd have had an opportunity to turn around, I would have done. Luckily, I didn't, and there were in fact plenty of spaces. I was greeted by a friendly member of staff, who showed me which walks I could do. There are lots of options. I opted for the Mill walk, which took me quite high up (quite steep at times), before leading me back down to the cafe at Gibson Mill: a good reward. I then continued the walk back along the river. For those that are less keen on longer walks, you can walk along the service road to Gibson Mill from Midgehole car park too.
