Discover is an amazing place for children and families from 0 - 11 years old to play and create stories. Focused on storytelling, children can let their imaginations run wild in the indoor Story Trail or venture outside into the Story Garden. Follow the Story Trail from the Lollipopter through to the Sparkly River, over the Trip Trap Bridge and through the caves. Dress up, make puppets and hold your own show and create your own stories with the help of the story-builders.
