From Our Editors

Conkers is a visitor centre with outdoor and indoor attractions located in the heart of The National Forest. Customers can start their adventure in the outdoor National Forest grounds, where a miniature railway, adventure playground and treetop viewing platform await discovery among maturing woodlands and gardens. Thrill-seekers can try the assault course, and those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground can opt for a sensory journey on the barefoot walk. Indoors, over 100 interactive exhibits demonstrate the workings of British woodlands over four seasonal zones. The enchanted forest play zone can capture the imagination of little ones even on a rainy day, and the simulated treetop walk transports visitors through the moving forest canopy to the mines and caves beyond. Why not experience the 4D Cinema too. A selection of eateries are on site for hungry visitors, from the casual coffee shop and kiosks to refined indoor and outdoor restaurants.

There is lots to see and do at Conkers to spend the whole day there. I recommend taking a packed lunch as the cafe prices are very expensive - £7.95 for an adults meal & £4.95 for a kids picnic box. Once you pay to get in there isn't much else to pay for the 4d cinema is free, so are the kids tractor go karts, nice walks about the woods, a ride on the train to get to a big playpark. The discovery centre at the beginning is quite run down a lot of the interactive stuff is broken but some good things to learn about nature and the environment and it has a good indoor climbing section for the kids to play on. The hi ropes (£7) and lo ropes (£5) are bookable on entry and you get given a time slot. My children really enjoyed this and it is very well run.

Great value for a family day out. Lots of different things to do. We paid the extra for my daughter to do the low ropes and it was certainly well worth it!
