Attraction Information

The Puzzling Place's World of Illusion takes the theme of Illusion and runs with it. It is home to their ‘Anti-gravity Room', ‘Ames Room', ‘Hologram Gallery' and ‘Eyelusions Exhibition'. It's a fascinating, fun and social excursion into the wonderful world of optical illusion, which will leave you, quite literally, not believing your eyes!

As the appeal of optical illusions crosses all age ranges the ‘World of Illusions' is an ideal place to be enjoyed and experienced with friends or family however young and old. It's generally the older generation of the family who are left surprised by how much they've enjoyed their visit!

It is free to enter ‘The Puzzling Place', as at the top of the stairs is their shop which is stuffed with puzzles, gadgets and curiosities and is guaranteed to have something to amuse, entertain or puzzle you. At the far end of the shop is the ‘Puzzle Area' which again, is free to enter. Here you can give your brain a work out trying to solve the puzzles and brain teasers which are set out for your entertainment and frustration!
