  • A lovely trail that is easy to follow to walk around Ambion woods by yourself between the guided walks (£4.95) for free. However the price is a little steep (adults £8.95) even though this price can include some living history re-enactments. However, this place is NOT English Heritage and doesn't offer a discount for EH members.
  • Place full of history. The guided walks are excellent and the guides very knowledgeable. Excellent visitors centre.
  • The museum is now a little dated, but it offers an interesting enough history that incorporates far more than the events of the battle itself. There are child-friendly paths through the exhibition, and the section on battlefield medicine is gorey enough to appeal to older kids! The real attraction is, however, to walk around the battlefield perimeter. Live reenactments are also held at the site.
  • Good half a day out. If your into your historical warfare this is really good, well presented, interactive, interesting - well worth visiting at least once.
  • Good information on the route around the battlefield. There were several audio machines at viewing points that you hand cranked to get working.
