Brilliant Dragon Hunt 5 out of 5 stars

Grandma and Jevan (aged 6) went on the Dragon Hunt as a half term treat. We had a great time - so much to look at and do in the castle as well as looking for clues to find Ruby the Dragon (glitter trails and green poo). The helpers were kind and gave us tips about what to look for, as well as helping to make dragon friendly badges. When we finally met Ruby, everyone was delighted, especially when they received a chocolate bar from her basket! We loved it all!
