Create an itinerary including The Puzzling Place
The Puzzling Place is exactly what its name suggests: a puzzling house of brain-twisting decor. Test your alacrity with the puzzles in the puzzle area at the top of the stairs and throughout the shop; both are free to enter. A small entrance fee will get you into the main attraction, the World of Illusion, which contains an "anti-gravity" room, a hologram gallery, and the "Eyelusions" exhibit. Be forewarned: The reality-bending exhibits might leave you reeling with laughter and dizziness.

  • Kids absolutely loved the Puzzling Place, and staff were really helpful! The place to go on a wet day! We really enjoyed it.

  • Costs £4,50 each, and we found it a bit of fun for 30-40 min. There are loads of things to see, the room at an angle was my favourite, but made me feel a bit woozy after. Great for kids and those...

  • Really enjoyed visiting this place! Lots of fun for all ages! Some of the things we're a little tired, but had a great time with the optical illusions. Excellent value! And the the gift shop is well worth spending a bit of money in! The lady at the counter was really friendly too. During school holiday times would recommend booking as it can get busy. Highly recommend!
  • Fun for all ages! We all had a blast checking out all the optical illusions and holograms, although mummy couldn't handle the tilted room. Short and sweet and worth every penny.
