From Our Editors

Conkers is a visitor centre with outdoor and indoor attractions located in the heart of The National Forest. Customers on a visit to Conkers 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. Thrillseekers can try the assault course, and those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground can go on 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 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. A selection of eateries are on site for hungry visitors, from the casual coffee shop and kiosks to refined indoor and outdoor restaurants.

I’m not the type of person to complain, but it was pretty dreadful. Almost half the things were broken or switched off. In the inside area there is a section about renewable energy - you can press buttons to see different thing, majority were not working. 4D cinema was pretty good. Outside area - small water play area for kids clogged up with leaves. Not been cleaned In a long time. Train had rain on ALL seats. Driver simply pulls up at the small stop (station) and expect you to sit in a soaking wet chair - surely they Could wipe them down in the morning. Obviously winter is a quite time of year for them, so it appears that they do not really bother maintaining the grounds and activities. They should close down in winter if they don’t value their customers at this time of year. I suspect this place will close down in the next few years, due to the lack of care for the facilities. It’s going down hill!

fantastic fun from start to finish, loads of activities for children to do inside and outside and the 4D cinema was an extra added bonus at no extra cost. Great fun all round definitely recommend. Staff also helpful and friendly.

We visited on a windy October day, adults & kids (2 & 4) loved it. Loads to see & do indoors & out. Kept us busy all day, we ran out of time to do it all! Train ride, adventure playground, nature trails, maze, interactive displays in visitors' centre. We can recommend the Waterside Centre for lunch, pizza was lovely. Will definitely visit again.

Great day out if you love the outdoors. We'll keep going back as our youngest is only 4 so as he gets older he can do more each time we go. That said they both still love it. Could do with toilets away from the main entrance/play area, it's a long way back when a 4 yr old suddenly announces he needs to go. Queues were slow getting in this half term despite having a voucher. Last year was quieter

I took 2 children 8 and 10 years. We had a fabulous day enhanced by good weather. Sublime Science good educational content (microphone not good therefore some children left during the performance). So impressed I bought an annual pass!

An all round fun filled day with lots to do! The bare foot mud trail is a must! Well worth the £21 family ticket paid on groupon!
