The museum entry is cheap and excellent value. The museum is very interesting. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is lovely. Unfortunately the aviary is empty and has litter inside. It looks as though the butterfly world isn’t open currently ?

Great show of lights for small children, fun fair rides and food kiosks. We had a wonderful time although, can be a little expensive when you add up the cost of tickets, rides and food. There's only so much you can do in the park apart from walk around looking at lights, there's not much else but to pay for the fun fair rides. It's worth a visit once per year.

This attraction is located within Preston Park in Stockton on Tees. The park itself is beautiful but going inside Butterfly World is an added bonus. It is about 26-28 degrees in temperature within the premises so expect a warm welcome. We were greeted with various butterflies in different color shape and sizes. Along with the insects we also feasted our eyes with tropical plants and beautiful orchids in full bloom. There is a pond teeming with fat fishes. Anotehr section with lizards, snakes, meerkat and ants. We appreciated the facts and figures written in colorful posters / boards , it added information and knowledge, helping us understand what these fascinating creatures are all about. We recomend walking calmly and gently while observing so as not to disturb the delicate balance of their living space.

Thorpe Thewles Station House on the old Castle Eden Railway line is the visitor centre for this woodland park and provides a pleasant café. There is a brilliant adventure playground with facilities for all ages and lots of picnic tables and grassed areas. The old line walk carries on for miles or you can branch off into the woodland walk where there are ponds for dipping and well defined paths, lots of birdlife to see. It is also popular with dog walkers and cyclists although the cyclists tend to do the line and not the woods. Can be quite muddy at times and maybe the paths are not as well kept as you would expect. Nice relaxing walk and children love it.

Multi million pound revamp changed the atmosphere. The place feels a lot lighter and cleaner than I remember it. All the old attractions are here, swimming pools, ice rink, gyms, steam rooms and sauna and a large number of sports activities, plus a reasonable café...MoreHi jikoku Thanks for your kinds words! We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us, the invesntment in the facility has certainly helped to keep the Forum as a leading leisure centre. We hope to see you again soon!

Excellent selection of restaurants and shops. Just one negative comment - the traffic is horrendous, Car drivers stopping on the road and waiting for cars to come out of parking spaces, taking ages to manouvre. This causes big tailbacks

Enjoyed wandering a little through the Gardens as part of the Christmas Fayre. Pretty 'upmarket' goods in the shop( costing a premium) including plenty of gins but beware - you can do much better in Morrisons. Beautiful colours in the late autumn

Wild Animal Adventures is an attraction added to an existing large pet store in Teesside... we show many animals that some people will probably never even heard of. Open 7 days a week and very reasonably priced, we are an all weather attraction with a hands-on experience with some of the animals being available. The whole experience has been designed to surprise...!
This place is horrible, it's like watching a cruelty show for nspca! It absolutely stinks to the point you are wretching and the animals are in dirty, small enclosures. It was horrible to see, the animals were making weird screeching noises, my son was crying because of the noises. Don't waste your money!

Attended a conference on Friday, had to pick up ticket at box office, they couldn’t find it (more than 1 representative from my company, so guessing it was given to someone else) advised to head up the stairs & sign in, accident waiting to happen as registration desk was on the right at the top of the stairs & everyone was waiting on the stairs blocking access & egress. Still no ticket so signed in anyway, pack in hand signed up for workshops, headed for a coffee, canister was empty, asked someone for a coffee was told it’s on the table to which I replied yes I know but it’s empty! Never did get one, lunch was shocking the queue took over 45 minutes to get to the counter & there wasn’t enough food to go round, several conference attendees headed off to the Sandwich shop nearby, wish I’d followed suit, not well managed at all. Absolute shame that our afternoon workshop was adjacent to the stairs as the young people were drowned out with noise from people going up/down the stairs. The content of the conference was good but based on this experience, I have no intention of returning.

We love this theatre and have visited frequently over the past few months.
Thought I would write another review as we have a gap in our visits and nothing booked for the Forum until September.
We have seen some excellent productions including The Sensational 60's ,The Stones, The Magic of the Beatles, The Carpenters Story and Reach out to Motown.
All of these shows were a great night out!
This is one of the few theatres we visit where it is a pleasure to sit and have a drink before a show. Plenty Seating with good staff organised by Richie. Normal theatre prices for drinks.
The ladies gets a special mention, the upstairs facility is always immaculate.
Looking forward to the autumn when we return for the Manfreds and many other shows.
