Visit the Centre

An award-winning, 5* family day out with over 60 acres of land to explore. Including a café, ice-cream parlour, shopping, a sculpture park, seasonal events and an outdoor children’s adventure play, there really is something for everyone here!

Café and Dining

We have a large café and ice-cream parlour offering a full breakfast, lunch and hot drinks menu. Our food and drinks are all homemade by our team of dedicated, in-house chefs using fresh, locally and ethically sourced ingredients. Additionally, we offer a dessert and scone counter where you will find a selection of mouth-watering cakes, traybakes and seasonal sweet treats to tempt you. We also have live music every weekend for you to enjoy whilst you dine.


We have a beautiful variety of shopping outlets, from home and interiors to hardware and garden. We also have an eclectic variety of handmade sculptures and artwork created by artisans from across the country. Remember to visit our Artisan Village where you can see various artists, including a potter and blacksmith, at work in their studio spaces! Find out more here. 


We have a lot of different activities and facilities to entertain the children throughout the year, with a large outdoor adventure play area, various sculpture trails and walks around the Centre, and dedicated children’s craft workshops. We understand that family days out are all about burning off that additional energy so, for the little arty ones who love getting mucky, we even have slime making and crafty workshops for them to enjoy!


Best known for our incredible sculptures, we have various pieces of art and points-of-interest to see and enjoy as you wander around the Centre. Famous for the knife angel and, more recently, the gorilla apocalypse, our centre is the ideal location to spend some much-needed time outdoors, walking the grounds and exploring the metal safari park at your own pace.


There is nothing more exciting than hiring a family buggy to pedal through the sculpture park! We offer four-seater cycle buggies, single trikes and, for those who like to take it a little more leisurely, we even have golf buggies for you to ride about on.


Every year, we have a full calendar of events ready to thrill all ages, from our annual Halloween Spooktacular and Christmas Grotto, to our Transport Rally and Picnic Proms. You’ll need to book tickets as our events are exclusive to members and sell out fast!
