  • Great interesting well preserved WWII fortress. John was a great guide too!!! Get along on one of their open days or you can organise a private tour.
  • A fascinating historical site that is well worth the time to visit. The guides are friendly and have a vast amount of knowledge to share about the fortress and its history from the 1940's to its ongoing restoration today.
  • This is a great place to go and see. I think it is only open 4 times a year. I had a look on Queens Birthday weekend it was excellent.
  • A fantastic place to visit. Make sure you go on one of there 4 open days a year!
  • Great experience. Interesting history and cool tunnels!
