  • Fantastic collection and well displayed. Really enjoyed my visit. A fascinating history of one of our fine regiments... covers most major campaigns of the last 300 years or so. Had a nice quiz to entertain the kids too!
  • Was expecting a museum about the castle. Not clearly explained. For military information it is fantastic
  • Lovely grounds. Friendly and welcoming. Enjoyed museum quiz hunt
  • Small Museam but well laid out with plenty of relevant information and displays. Well worth a visit.
