This was an interesting site to visit, and the museum was pretty good, not particularly large but interesting nonetheless. They were clearly in the process of expanding the museum, so no doubt it will be better in the future, with more to see and clearer...More

Where the armistice was signed. You visit the train wagon but also there is a relatively new museum behind still being finalised. Enjoyable.

Suspect that a cab will be only viable solution, cycling could work but it’s probably about 6-7 miles from the station. Hope this helps.
