  • Fascinating piece of WW2 history tucked away in Ramsgate. Very informative and friendly guides, suitable for children and adults. Not great for anyone who is unsteady on their feet. Well worth every penny.
  • Vey good. The tour is very interesting and educational, and the tour guides are very friendly and are always happy to help. The Ratz café is very nice and the foods and drink there are wonderful. I would Highly recommend going.
  • A great way to spend a couple of hours. Visited while on honeymoon this week, very helpful guides and a great lesson on the history of the town and the people of the time.
  • Fascinating. The tour was excellent and it was all very un-National-Trust, which is a good thing :D Book in advance if you can as they are a small operation.
  • Brilliant for a day out and to understand the history of Ramsgate. Loved it
