We were staying in the area and had to kill a few hours before our onward journey. Was delighted to read the reviews of this place and so we visited with our 2 children, 13 and 9. It's a really quirky charming place and the...More

We weren’t sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It’s very quirky, with lots to see and buttons to press. We enjoyed playing the games and just looking at the creations!

This was the unexpected hit of our holiday. Initially it doesn't look much but as soon as you set eyes on the flying machine over the entrance you know you're in for something different. Our grandsons, 8, 6, 5 and 2, thought this was brilliant...More

I went here with my family (wife, and daughter (9) and son (6)). All I knew at the outset was that the founder, Robert Coudray, made things out of recycled materials. What we discovered was a wide range of fantastical machines (often doing nothing useful),...More
