  • Really enjoyed this. Great building with lots of history. The v audio guide was good but didn't really enjoy the story vibe to it. Would have preferred a more factual version rather than a dramatic version so lost interest.

  • Visited today Sunday 6/9/2015, highly recommend the 11.00am outside tour the volunteer VIcky, was very knowledgeable and made the visit very interesting. All the volunteers there were very welcoming helpful and full of interesting information.
  • Interesting place to visit to learn about why workhouse's existed and what it was like to live and work in one.
  • The tour guide for the outside was very polite and friendly. However everyone else on the inside was really quite rude and made you feel like if you didn't do the in ear tour you wasn't Really welcome
