  • A very interesting museum with a huge amount to see (too much for one visit). A mysterious collection of items mostly brought back from Africa and Asia by a ludicrously rich gentleman. Unfortunately he also enjoyed shooting, and at the time it was considered fair game to bring back a giraffe, elephant, gorilla, rhino and various other creatures to be stuffed and displayed for the entertainment of the public. There was a genuine desire to educate people about these animals, but it still leaves a sour taste. Stuffed monkeys aside, there is lots to explore here, together with a house to explore (open over the Summer only) and extensive grounds that would be ideal for a picnic on a sunny day.
  • Really, really interesting small museum and stately home and gift shop. Grounds nice to have a wander around which are well kept. Check the house is open on the day you visit though before you leave home to avoid any disappointment. Lovely food at the restaurant near the museum entrance but quite expensive.
  • Had fun playing paintball, but there was a lot of waiting around to start and between games, also the marshall could have laid off on upselling extra paintballs at the end of every game.
  • Lots of interesting things to look at with lots of information to read. Kids had a great time, gardens are lovely.
  • A 15th century estate with large grounds and Mansion. There is a museum inside which is famous for the stuffed animals that this Explorer shot on his many expeditions which was accepted then but goes against modern day ethics. Weddings are held here in the large function Hall and many concerts in the grounds. I saw Madness and on another occasion Olly Murrs which was great fun
