  • Gill was a Fab tour guide, imparted knowledge in a clear and concise manner. I had been before and the information this time was a little more in depth than last time. The museum side of things has also changed for the better. Well worth a visit. Lovely food and cuppa at the Tunnel cafe too! Thank you all.
  • A brilliant, well organised and hugely informative step back into history. There's so much to do, allow a couple of hours just to look around and don't miss the tours. The guides are very knowledgeable and approachable, clearly enjoying sharing their responsibility as guardians, with locals and tourists. A dark period brought back to life in a very sympathetic way. Great job to everyone involved!
