  • Fascinating history of the Regiment. Interactive information screens and a dressing up area with games. Very useful folding stools available. Friendly staff, lovely hot chocolate in Cafe and well stocked shop.
  • I visited here with my little lad. We got a great groupon offer which made this a cheap day out. It was great to pass the time with and my lad enjoyed looking at the the machine guns and soldiers outfits. The spy trail was fab and interactive and he loved the prizes at the end. Easy to get to and a little gem to pass the time. Its not overly big but we spent good hour or so here
