Will definitely recommend & use again. Victoria was superb from my very 1st call when inwas just enquiring. Never once chased me with calls or emails like all the other companies did that i contacted with the usual sales stuff of 'limited availability, book now' stuff. Every question asked was promptly & informatively answered. In Victorias absence Jenna was no different with questions i asked & making amendments to the booking like it was no hassle whatsover. The activities were superb, the hotel was great and the night out was even better. A very well planned day & evening with no bother or hassle. A great time had by all 10 of us. Thank You all

Went here on Saturday evening and was surprised by the staffs response when entering the venue with a wheelchair. They panicked and made my friend feel awkward. We had called and booked a wheelchair seat with a career. Felt extremely unwanted and uncomfortable. Show was good, venue is nice (travelled down from London). Just a shame about the reception received from staff.

Lose yourself amongst the birch trees, wander around the heath and linger in the meadow, Buchan Park has plenty to offer.

if walking is what you do than this is the place to go, ample of parking, small shop for refreshments with a small area for children to explore what wildlife there is
dogs an go for a paddle at the smaller pond at the far end, to go around the lake will take about 20 minutes but more challenging routes are for the taking, i like to go with my family as it is safe to let the kids loose,

Crawley Memorial Gardens

Reviewed By dace520 - Redhill, United Kingdom

Having taken our 'young' grandson shopping at County Mall it was a pleasure to escape into the Memorial Park. I think the council keep the park to a high level of horticulture - flower beds & general plantings. I expect the grandson would give the 'play-ground' activities a high score too - better than the Mall.

Ifield Mill Pond and Bewbush Water Gardens

Reviewed By tanzicat - Crawley West Sussex

Crawley Borough Council have done an excellent job creating a walk way across the lake.
Stroll past the smaller lake and admire the swans and public metal swan statue the cross the road and walk round or a cross the main lake.
There is a variety of ducks, swans, geese and birds including herons and cormorants. Every year he babies are born Nd it is lovely to see the ducklings and cygnets
It is a great place for walks and to take the children.
With the correct licence you can fish and /or use radio controlled boats.
Sme times there are outside woodcraft events too.
Infield water I'll is a short walk away as is water field adventure playground, so something for everyone.
There is a different view for every day of the year and I just love it.

Gala Bingo Crawley

Reviewed By Philip P - Crawley, United Kingdom

Lovely atmosphere where you have the chance to win big, and small! Plenty of slot machines and good food on a daily basis. Lots of fun each and every day, sadly, I seem to win only occasionally, however, local people have won big money on the National games that happen every day. You have nothing to lose and maybe thousands of pounds to gain, so give it a go. My wife and I go regularly and so you have to be in it to win it! By the way a fully stocked bar is here as well, so you can enjoy a wine or beer, or softy while you play.
