Brilliant way to pass a few hours. Took my 2 grandsons aged 8 and 6 into the tour. It was interesting to see how the cheese is made . The children loved the giant cheese related puzzles. The cheese samples room was good too. The best thing was cheese on toast in the cafe . Great gift shop too.
My son loves cheese and he's in heaven in the tasting area (and I love free cheese!). I was quite surprised how popular the visitor centre is but it goes to show how popular Wensleydale is. Don't do your weekly cheese shop here though, it'll cost you a bit.
