Exciting for children of all ages & adults. Interesting atmosphere with mystery & hidden magic. A few unusual shops to see and things to do while waiting to go into the Labyrinth. Love the smoking dragon incense burners & candle making. Well worth a visit, especially on a rainy day

I have been coming here with my parents since I was little but this is my first time with my girlfriend. She had an amazing time, and learnt the story of King Arthur. Would recommend for anyone with or without children.
