  • Wow, amazing guided tour. Our guide has a wealth of local knowledge and really brought the place to life. A brilliant visit.
  • Visited on a heritage open day,its a well laid out and informative center,staff are helpfull and the place isnt crammed with exhibits,not sure about disabled access so may be worth checking before you go
  • Very interesting guided tour. The guide, David, knew his stuff. Shame that there's a threat of funding being lost. It's a World Heritage site, for goodness sake.

  • 2 stars purely for the fact the owner needs to invest in this place rather than letting it go to ruin. It could be and should be an outstanding building in a lovely location.
