This is the first thing you notice when coming to Hamilton and well worth a visit for visitors and locals both young and old. The tour guide Peter was very knowledgeable and brought a good mix of humour and serious history..

I have been on numerous occasions, with different parties, School, Gentlemen, and such like, and everyone had a wonderful time the last time was 3 years ago with a party of Gentlemen from the Netherlands, and they all enjoyed it.

Great place to visit for historical or architectural interests. Kids will enjoy hearing their shouts, with the longest echo in the world, inside the mausoleum. You have to book tickets in advance!
