Quite a short trip round this wonderful old building. Lots of interactive bits and pieces for the kids to get into. Loved reading about the battle!

Excellent exhibition explaining the history of the town including the eponymous battle of the Wars of the Roses fought just a short distance away. It puts the other historical parts of the town into context.

Very informative visit and wonderful display boards. Plenty of objects and activities that children can enjoy and do, including dressing up in helmets and clothes. A great visit.
