Further enhancing this bewitching experience, the park also hosts a range of eateries offering British cuisine. Whether it’s the hearty roast beef, the quintessential fish and chips, or the classic afternoon tea, the gastronomic delights are bound to satiate both, the appetite and the curiosity of the visitors.
