The MarlowMum’s verdict: For younger children, toddlers and pre-schoolers and even early Ks1, Bekonscot offers a really sweet day out. When kids get a bit older you may find they rush round and are done a bit too quickly, but for toddlers and pre-schoolers it’s a perfect morning activity before coming home for naps.
