  • We visited with our 5-year-old grandson and thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty for children to do - the assault course is £4.00 for as many circuits as you wish during your visit. The car park is a fair £3.00, or you can use the car park across the road for free. Admission is free. On exit the shop is worth a browse - lots of fun items.
  • This is always a great place to go , especially with the kids ( for me anyway!) It's free entry, parking is 3 pound during the school holidays. The long tunnel keeps them entertained , making spooky ghost noises mostly! Cafe is nice and reasonably priced. The staff are lovely and all know what they are talking about when it comes to the history of the fort. Nice little gift shop with a 'pocket money' selection of toys and pens etc. Great place for a picnic up on the settlements. There is an assault course for young kids there during the holidays, with an ice cream kiosk near by. Would highly recommend.
