Well worth visiting to learn about a piece of history. A little insite on how it all began with a vision from Marconi and others

An interesting place to learn about Marconi's work to send the first wireless signal across the Atlantic. There is a short video to watch and lots of information boards, plus various pieces of equipment. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly. Check the opening times...More

We really were looking forward to our visit but when we arrived the sign said opening hours were in the afternoon and early evening only and we were there at 10'30am. Shame.

A great place to visit to remind us of a world before cell phones and the internet. Very kind and helpful staff and great views from the coast.

A small shed that houses the local amateur radio society. We were made welcome and shown around the displays of Marconi history and memorabilia. 20 mins and all was done. It's free entry, so no gripes about value for money but it is rather limited!...More

Wanted to visit here whilst walking the coast path. Pleased it was open - thanks to the volunteers. It didn't take long to look around, but being from Chelmsford it was a must! Good to see the plaque by the gate.
