  • Visited today. Only the 2 of us on the tour. Very informative. Good to handle exhibits too. Friendly guide with a nice sense of humour. Shop seems well stocked and bacon cooking in the cafe made us hungry. Will be recommending everyone to pay a visit.
  • After finding out about this place and not been able to get there for a few months we finally made it. My husband and I were the only 2 people to be on our tour. Aaron our guide what can I say a lovely ex squaddie with a sense of humour and a great guy. I would totally recommend a visit.
  • Well worth a visit. Run and looked after by Veterans. Learn the history from 1st World War onwards. Covers people who have won the Victoria Cross. The tours are very educational. If you don't fancy going round the museum then why not call into the cafe. The food is really good and the cakes are all homemade and fantastic. Very very friendly people and the money raised goes towards a good cause. The looking after of VC resipients graves and upkeep. Please visit and have a wonderful time. Open Mon, Tues, Thur, Fri, Sat and Sun.
  • Absolutely brilliant, great hands on, had a great tour guide named John made it very enjoyable, we even had a laugh trying on equipment. How any soldier could move in the stuff is beyond belief. Great place to go with kids staff are very welcoming
  • Ashworth barracks is a great place to visit for all, young or old, it is wheelchair access ible, all the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable you can also visit the onsite shop and cafe, they also support the Victoria Cross Trust. A tour round the museum can take around two hours,some of the displays are hands on, just the thing for the younger ones.
