  • A must-see for anyone interested in Waterloo. The well produced show in the barn is a great bonus. Definitely worth walking to get to rather than taking the bus as you will be following the right of the British line on the ridge and various monuments and explanatory board that will really enhance your understanding of the battle.
  • Excellent visitor centre with a very impressive film show. Lovely surroundings with a pleasant walk from the main waterloo visitor centre. Well worth a visit to see how the strength and courage of the men from both sides played out on such an important day.
  • Amazing!! We can her in June 16th for the reenactments! So cool! Even if you are in Waterloo when it's not the reenactments don't miss it! The farm is amazing and the video is really cool and well done! Super worth it!!
  • Gives you at atmospheric feel of the battle. Nicely restored, with a good set of exhibits. My children liked going to the wall around the orchard and looking through the loopholes at where the attacking French forces would have advanced.
  • Historical atmosphere and a spcetacular screening.
