Very friendly, helpful staff. The games section was brilliant my 2 grandsons loved it lots of interactive games and could go on as many times has you liked. Great photo opportunities and lots of interesting information on all aspects of football. Well worth a visit I will be visiting again.

I would definitely recommend I took my 9year old for his birthday and he loved it. We spent almost 4 hours here and would come back again
