Dinosaur World Somerville - step through the gates and travel back millions of years....

Experience the dinosaurs up close and personal. The amazing anamatronics make you feel like you are in the land before time.

Check out our exclusive cute and educational merchandise in our Dinosaur barn. Enjoy feeding our resident geese and have a tractor ride around our Christmas Tree Farm. Our walking dinosaur "Wilson" comes out to say hello at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm - great photo opportunity. Also "Wilbur" our baby raptor, Lollipops our baby triceratops and Nibbles our baby T Rex,. come out throughout the day to say hi. Enter our "Dig and Discover" area where children can experience being a Palaeontologist by finding a fossil and "chiseling away" to find what is inside. They get to take home their find for a keepsake. We have sausage sizzle, sell buckets of chips, potatoes cakes and hot donuts. BBQ facilities and picnic tables are available, if you prefer to bring your own so why not bring a picnic and dine with our dinosaurs. We sell coffee, ice creams and cold drinks for your enjoyment. Look out for the big Dinosaur at our entry gate.

  • It took us an hour to drive here hoping for a good day out. Really overpriced for what u get. 30 mins and your done and even the train ride wasn’t working. For the price I am not sure what they are...

  • Great little park. Both grandsons 3 and 41/2 loved it. Even 12 month old was intrigued. Yes dinosaurs in park were old but kids didn’t mind and the fact that some roared and moved was fabulous...

  • Glad I went. Almost didn't go because of the bad reviews. My kid loves dinosaurs so the anamatronics were great. The gift shop is reasonably priced. The ticket price is fine for the upkeep that must be required for the place. Try the sausage at the food stall! The train ride wasn't available when we went. I would imagine the kids would have enjoyed it if it was up and running.
  • A great outing for kids, whether they love dinosaurs or have a slight interest- and for all toddlers! Plenty to do IMO- not too much, gives kids a chance to play and just be kids- and thoughtfully planned. Easy for parents as everything is close together, and you can relax as they do their dinosaur dig or hang out in the sandpit/ small playground. Staff were great also. This is now my 5 year olds favourite place. For any kid who loves dinosaurs, it’s an absolute must :)
