A really informative and interesting day out for all the family. We spent all day wandering around the site there is certainly plenty to do. The ticket lasts 12 months so we will definitely be visiting again when we are up from Cornwall.

We loved visiting this place. It was as if we had slipped through a time warp back into the past. People were all very authentic and pleasant. We would visit again.
