Absolutely superb. The guide was knowledgeable and passionate about the Painted Hall and the restoration project. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the ceiling up close and I will be recommending it to everyone I know.

I hadn't visited the area in sometime, but decided to bring my partner here as she had never been. I love the old buildings and the layout of what is on offer.

The historical aspect is worth a visit for alone, let alone if you are in the Navy in any area of the world.
