Such a great day out 4 out of 5 stars

We had a great day and packed loads in, the app is really useful to check queue times. The runaway train is terrifying and definitely not for the faint hearted! Food was pretty good and staff so friendly and helpful - donuts are not to be missed! New CBeebies park is good for little ones too. Don't miss out on the walk through the gardens up to the castle, it's beautiful.
