We first visited in the summer when a 40’s show was staged and was brilliant. I was able to purchase some beautiful dresses and fur stoles. This visit was a walk around with the granddaughters.

£1 entry, it was quite informative, you can take an audio pack to listen to the information, not really up my street but my partner enjoyed it, long tunnels with small rooms going off them with different things to see in them. There is a...More
