  • Great place to go to get a sense of what it was like for the would ers living in the trenches. If you are into your history it's a definite must. If it's a nice day a walk around the lead mines also known as Whitespots is a must. It was mined until 1849 there are some beautiful walks even a lake and Forrest which runs along close to the golf course.
  • Chilling, a very good exhibit that hits home.
  • Great but need to pay a lot for a tour
  • A great history lesson.
  • For a great tour of relics of the first world war , what it may have been like in the trenches , weapons used and diaries of soldiers etc , group tours including lunch from the cafe which is great and well priced . Then you can walk through the clandeboye estate to Helens tower , beautifully nestled in the woods , great day out for family's and groups of all sizes .
