  • Fantastic day out. If you enjoy walking then this is for you. The heritage centre is a must too, at £8.45 for an adult ticket that you can use for 12 months. It's well worth the money. The car park is a steal too at £2.50 for all day, you can't go wrong.
  • Interesting place! Though thought it was a bit steep charging for the guided tour around the battle field, felt it should of been included in the price. Enjoyed the medieval actors dressed up and talking about the weapons.
  • This is a really interesting exhibition with enough to keep the kids engaged (especially armour to try on). Tickets now last a year but don't include the extra events. I wouldn't expect that, but perhaps a reduction would be possible.
  • I had a business lunch in the barn cafe. Greek salad with loads of Feta, olives, onion, cucumber, tomatoes and crispy lettuce. Really enjoyed it. Nice plate of chips and big pot of tea to go with it. Lovely surroundings.
  • Considering it's a field they've donecaclot with it. Good cafe, excellent cycling destination with the advantage of an invigorating climb to get your cup of tea!
