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.

  • Brilliant for an hour to kill. The kids really enjoyed the illusions as did we. The dogs could come too which was great as it’s rare to find a dog friendly indoor attraction.

  • Absolutely fantastic place! Highly recommended for all. Great fun & very cleverly done. We spent a good couple of hours there and got some great photos too.
  • Great fun for all the family we loved the rooms to change sizes :) there is lots of interesting exhibits and "puzzles" to read and interact with. The shop was filled with lots of fun toys and puzzles the kids spent lots of time choosing what they wanted to buy.
