  • Truly beautiful and nostalgic, and so quiet and peaceful. A wonderful piece of history.
  • Very impressive. Didn't download the app guide . Would have liked to see more information signage around the site.
  • Beautifully restored. Walk around at your leisure and up the Kingsriver. No wheelchair access, not suitable for buggies.
