  • Wonderful, historic site. The park is lovely. The restoration works done to date make this a place to visit. Looking forward to when this attraction is open 7 days. Great to see more work being done to make this a real tourist attraction.

  • Great trip into the past. Have been there many times and live close by. Brillant experience for historians young and old alike
