  • Definitely worth visiting when you are around. It's not fantastic, but pretty good, especially if you like visiting historic sites. 5 quid entrance fee is reasonable, but 3 quid would be better. It takes an hour to see everything, but half an hour will also suffice. There is no place to sit there or have a coffee 🍵. I enjoyed it though, but was not excited.
  • What a nice surprise. A cheap, interesting old WWII fort (though originally from the 17th century). There was a good division between "museum" and original rooms that you could easily see how it used to be and the audio guide was well produced and not overly long. If you happen to be in the area it's worth a trip and far exceeds expectations when you take into account how awful the rest of Felixstowe is.
  • Lovely place. Free and easy space for kids to run around. English Heritage annual passes an absolute steal. Small friendly shop. Dogs allowed. Great afternoon out.
  • We visited as part of our family holiday. There was lots to do and see and the free audio tour really helped to bring the place to life. It took a good couple of hours to complete the tour and both children enjoyed the activity trail and exhibits.
  • Excellent piece of history. The audio walking tour was excellent and informative. But don't forget to keep exploring after the tour as there is plenty to explore.
