  • Very informative tour. All guides are ex-military - worth a visit but build in plenty of time. 2-3+ hours (depending on your interest). Great value and a unique experience as the focus is on the valour and stories of individuals. Hands on with opportunity to hold equipment - gives you respect for the fitness levels required.
  • Absolutely fantastic place, really interesting. Done great vehicles and displays. Had a guided tour to ourselves too. Would recommend it
  • Lovely war museum. Keith was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and a laugh. Great how we got to handle the weapons, was not expecting that. Outside grounds could do with improving though and no smoking near the entrance x
  • Always like it here. Its nostalgic being ex army. They have good themed days as well.x
  • Had a good time there really nice staff ,loads to do , the equipment they have there is unbelievable
