"Great day out for anyone with Primary School age children…"
Great day out for anyone with Primary School age children and possibly even older.
There is a great, interactive indoor exhibition illustrating the history of the Shale Industry, including a look at the geological formation of Shale and prehistoric plants and animals.
There are lots of different animals in the farm area of the centre, with lots of 'events' such as feeding and introductions to the animals with lots of stroking and petting.
There is a little steam engine and a tractor ride with some lovely country walks, following the river Almond.
Next to the farm part of the centre is a great outdoor play area with go-karts, trampolines and a large, enclosed sandpit with hidden fossils and skeletons.
There is a cafe on site and a picnic barn for anyone bringing their own food, which always a bonus.
Reasonably priced atRead moreLess

I think this is a great place lots to do and very child friendly I believe they do an anual membership also which is very cost effective if you live within driving rangeRead moreLess
"It's not exactly a wildlife park but there's no space…"
It's not exactly a wildlife park but there's no space for farm parks so here it is. This is one of the best young children's attractions I've come across so far. It's probably best suited to pre-school or early school children (despite this, under 3's are free). There are various farm animals, with free roaming ducks and chickens and participative lamb/ calf feeding times. There is a small cafe as well as free picnic areas (covered and uncovered) with a free bouncy castle beside them. There are mini pedal karts, trampolines, 'archaeological dig' (sand pit), all free, as well as tractor rides, train rides and soft play (reasonable small extra fee). For slightly older children, there is a small museum too.Read moreLess
