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.

  • Over Crowed, no none managing the museum displays / areas. Looks like someone got everything from eBay and hung it on walls. Lots of it doesn’t work and just has a sticker saying “victim of covid...

  • Really enjoyed visiting this place! Lots of fun for all ages! Some of the things we're a little tired, but had a great time with the optical illusions. Excellent value! And the the gift shop is well worth spending a bit of money in! The lady at the counter was really friendly too. During school holiday times would recommend booking as it can get busy. Highly recommend!
  • Fun for all ages! We all had a blast checking out all the optical illusions and holograms, although mummy couldn't handle the tilted room. Short and sweet and worth every penny.
