  • Despite the wind and rain there was much to see with numerous displays. Lots of buttons to press. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • Very well worth a visit, well laid out with all the different rooms, plenty of buttons for kids to press. Plenty of history told regarding the fort. Only disappointment was the Blitz Experience only.....  more »
  • We had a lovely day. It wasn't too busy so we felt we could really take our time. It has a large outdoor area within the fort including a cafe, picnic tables if you bring your own lunch and kids play park as well as a lovely grass walk higher up with amazing views. Loads of little rooms and out buildings to explore. Some interactive things for the kids, a dress up area and a fall out shelter experience which was brilliant. We went in a group and the kids from 2yrs to 14yrs really enjoyed it, as did the adults.
  • Great place to visit. Not too big, good to explore, decent exhibitions all in small easily managed sections. Cafe with very tasty food at a good price, simply served. Could do with a better dishwasher for the cutlery , hence the reduction by 1 star..!
