Not a great deal to see but what is there is fairly interesting. Unfortunately no parking at Red House, however, nearby roads have parking. Not far from a bus stop but not particularly easy to find.

There is limited parking on the roads around the red house but watch out for the parking restrictions. It can get very busy especially if it’s a sunny weekend
