Beautiful spot to visit and views to die for. Staff were extremly polite and pleasent. It was lovely that people could play with the no longer comissioned machine guns. With only a fiver entry fee and live music must say its worth a visit

Without a shadow of a doubt one of the most interesting fascinating places that I have visited recently. It is full of history and its an amazing fact that only one third of this venue has been restored to date. There is hours of entertainment...More
