Read what some happy customers have to say

The teddy bear workshop is amazing. It’s just like the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe as you get to it through a wardrobe which really adds to the magic of the party. There’s a great selection of bears and we had a great host called Carlie. The bookings team was really helpful and can’t do enough for you. I would totally recommend this package.
