More Reviews:
“We treated ourselves to the festive afternoon tea on Friday at The Canalside restaurant here and it was absolutely fabulous. The staff went out of their way to help us and could not have been more accommodating. We were looked after beautifully with our endless coffee being frequently topped up. The afternoon tea was beautifully presented and delicious…..we did have to take a doggy bag home with us as there was just so much of it!! I would thoroughly recommend this ……. a lovely treat pre-Christmas!” Penny Warner

“We had a great afternoon seeing Elsa and Anna today! Second year running for us and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself again.” Chloe Smith

“Another fab afternoon at Whilton Locks, this time making Christmas wreaths. I highly recommend both this workshop and the summer hanging basket workshop. Your staff have so much patience and a wonderful sense of humour. Thanks especially to Brian and Marie. See you guys soon.” Jayne Lacovides

“We came today with our two boys for ice skating. We had such a lovely morning. Boys also got to go on Frosty the snowman, get their faces painted and have cuddles with some of the animals. It was such a lovely experience and mainly down to the amazing friendly staff you have. The guys on the ice rink was super helpful, the man on Frosty the snowman was so friendly, the ladies facepainting and the ones in the cuddle corner, all made it such a lovely morning!!! we will be back again be for Christmas!! Thanks so much Xxx.” Vickie Taylor

Sounds great doesn’t it?
