  • This place is free to get in, free! It's better equipped than most museums and even has events, which are free. I love walking around the underground tunnels and hope one day I can explore some of the restricted areas.
  • Fantastic place. Kids loved it. Get there for around 1230 to be in time for the 1300 cannon fire. It's free entry!
  • An amazing place to go free entry nice cafe car park good way to spend a few hours
  • Fantastic place to visit, cannot believe that it is free! Donation made. Plenty of things to see and do and the organised activities looked good!
  • A wonderful treat for history lovers. Fantastic displays set in a Victorian Fort. The new cafe is not to be missed !
