“Its a fantastically, amazing place to visit and its absolutely free, yes in this day an age who would have thought it. It's got a cinema, an F1 (Real F1 car), game simulations, has a cinema, can go for test drives (paid of course), show cases all the latest cars, which you can sit in and get the feel of and has a museum with some of the most iconic Mercedes cars including a replica of the first ever car built by the Benz brothers. its a truly remarkable MUST SEE place, I went for the first time after 35 years of living in this town and took kids there another dozen or so times, it so cool and enjoyable, cant believe it was under our nose all these years and never actually went out to see it sooner.”

Park
“The woodland shores of this magnificent lake are hugely popular amongst people who love to take part in the wide range of activities that are possible here - from walking or running the perimeter, to simply relaxing and enjoying the view. This area is steeped in a rich history that spans centuries - from ancient monuments, to cascading waterfalls and stunning vistas. Virginia Water is very popular all year round, with its glittering waters and abundance of wildlife. The ornamental Cascade waterfall is always a favourite feature - while children love the towering 100 foot Totem Pole, being fascinated by the ten mystical totem characters.”

“Whether you're feasting with friends or simply want to relax with a cocktail or two, our unique blend of Caribbean spices, warming rums and sunshine on the rocks has got you sorted. From vegan to the ultimate meat jerk pit feast, there is something for everyone at Turtle Bay! We’re all about slowing down hanging out and feeling good and we have three big loves – rum, reggae and jerk. Sure, we do much more these days but our oh-so-good cocktails, fiery jerk and juicy tracks always remind us of the warmth, spirit and flavours of the Caribbean – in fact, they’re the very things that got us opening our first-ever restaurant. ”
