    The highlight of this visit was the tour give by Yeoman Warden Kelly aka beefy409! He is very knowledgeable and his humor was on point! When I go back I will make sure to get another tour by Yeoman Warden Kelly!

    Visited it just as it was closing at5. We were able to walk on the walkway which had amazing facts and videos that walked us through the history of bridge. Must visit and then stick around to see the gates lifting up.

    Only one of my children is a big man city fan but all the kids we brought along age 6 to 10 had a great time. Enjoyed the tour with Ian f immensely, he had a great way in involving all the children, and had alot of knowledge on not just man city, Manchester in general. I'm not realy interested in football myself and even I enjoyed it.

    If Liverpool is your team, take the full tour of the stadium (not just the museum). You get to see so many things, including the locker rooms and the pitch both from above and at ground level. There is an audio unit provided and we learned so much as we walked around, looked at everything, and listened to the information on the audio tour. You don't get rushed and can take your time with every part. Don't forget to stop and ask the tour guides questions - some of them have stories to tell!

    Fantastic visit, highly educational. A brilliantly preserved monument to British railway history. Reserve a good 2 hours for this visit. A reasonably priced cafe with good food and drink.

    Locomotives, diesel, steam and electric. A great example of the Eurostar and the Japanese bullet train. The royal carriages are a must see.

    All of the above for the grand total of zero of your hard earned pounds. As ever a donation is welcomed but this is unbeatable in the value for money stakes.

    Great, informative experience. Really good value and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. We went over two days as ticket allows returns free within a year. Lots of interactive things for children and nice to just explore at own pace.

    First visit to Oxford and wanted to visit museum as enjoyed the one in London . We all really enjoyed the visit lots to see and very interesting . The only negative was it was very hot there were fans on around the museum but still a bit uncomfortable . Would definitely recommend a visit if your in Oxford but would be better on a cooler day .

    This free to visit museum is everything you want for a day out. Advisable to book entry beforehand, there is a car park next door although this is a little expensive. Very friendly and welcoming staff to guide you. There are 3 floors of exhibits to view. We went on a day that had events on, sword fighting and horse events. These were amazing to watch and very entertaining. I would allow at least 2 hours to see everything. Accessible for people with disabilities. There is an on site cafe and shop. This attraction may be free but I'd recommend making a donation which you can do inside the museum. Great day out

    Visited today after hearing about the tunnel from a friend. We had a great time and Phil and John our guides were brilliant. So informative and not bad actors either. I would certainly recommend a visit.

    We thought we were just paying to see the main Roman bath area. Boy were we wrong! Lots of see and learn here at this wonderful site. We even got to taste the spring water at the end.

    I took my children to the Titus is king exhibition there which my 4yr old loved as he is mad on dinosaurs. We went around the rest of the museum. It was a lovely day so afterwards we went out side and spent a couple hours there. We had ice creams, the children played on the park, which is a lovely park and there was a little fair there we went on. You had to purchase tokens for and it was aimed at little children not older ones. We saw some deer on the drive out of the park. A lovely day out. Lots of people were there with a picnic.

    Sheffield Botanical Gardens was a satisfying experience. Actually we visited because my partner likes to feed ducks and squirrels. We found a lot of Squirrels, even more than our favorite St. James Park but I have to inform readers of this review that there is no open pond or ducks/swans at this particular garden at time of this review. This is no reason not to visit this mesmerizing place though as there are many other serene places to visit here.

    There is a magical rose garden, a stroll worthy main lawn with beautiful fountains and many snapshot worthy spots.

    For us, squirrels were the star of our visit, too many and very friendly. Also lots of pigeons around but they were a bit aggressive, occasionally scaring off squirrels away to catch the odd bite.

    As a botanical Garden, it has enough content to enhance visitors knowledge with lots of botanical species, yet this is no Kew Gardens where any Horticulture enthusiast can gather information easily from pro to amateur.

    Also, it needs more cafes and eating spots. One can sit and enjoy at benches all over the garden but I would prefer more spots for an energizing coffee. Still you can visit Starbucks and other coffee shops outside the park after your visit.

    My final opinion, as a beautiful Park/Garden its worth a visit, though I think it caters to locals more for a daily or weekly activity.
