Made up of Planet Earth Museum, a heritage trail and gardens, a kids’ play zone and a garden centre, Paradise Park in Newhaven, East Sussex, provides plenty whether the weather’s inclement or fine. The museum charts life on earth from the very start and is home to a wonderful collection of fossils, minerals and crystals that are up to 500 million years old. Look out for the fossil dinosaur egg from the Xixia basin in China, laid a whopping 97 million years ago and overcome by floods before it could hatch. Kids love the dinosaur garden, with life size models of the beasts roaring away that once would have roamed the Sussex countryside. The lovely winter gardens have several small lakes, waterfalls and fountains as well as a pond teeming with fish for the little ones to feed in spring and summer. The Sussex History Trail is within the gardens and has hand-crafted models of Sussex landmarks.

Paradise Park is part of the following Editors' Picks:

The Ten Best Places for the Kids in East Sussex by Dinah Hatch

"Life-size moving dinosaurs? What’s not to love? Take the kids on a dinosaur safari and let them wander the grounds accompanied by the roaring of T-Rexes and Triceratops until they spot the fearsome creatures towering over the vegetation and ready to pounce! There’s also a Museum of Life stuffed with incredibly old fossils and intricate crystals and a series of themed gardens to explore when the sun shines."
