It's a funtastic family day out at the World of Country Life ! There are over 2 acres indoors with loads to do: crawl through the themed, age-specific soft play areas, whizz round the mini electric go kart track, get up close to the animals in the nursery and petting centre, climb aboard the good ship Lady Suzannah in the pirate ship play area while mum and dad have a rest in the indoor beach hut, tuck into some tasty home cooked food in the brand new Farmer Lee's Food Barn restaurant, watch the daily International Ferret Racing Total Wipeout show in the Barnyard Theatre, explore the past in the museum of farm machinery, take a trip down memory lane in the Victorian street (as featured on BBC1's The One Show), cruise around the south west's largest collection of vintage vehicles in the Hall of Transport (and see vehicles that have appeared on TV in Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge and Parade's End) and view the famous Reg Imray motorcycle collection. The fun doesn't stop indoors: there's plenty outside too! Hand feed the llama and deer on the Deer Train Safari, watch the daily falconry display from the fantastic Hawkridge Bird of Prey team, take a goat for a walk, shoot down the big blue slide, bounce on the trampolines, swing through the adventure playground or play a round of crazy golf. There's so much fun, come rain or shine: can you do it all in a day?!
