Excellent and educational display in the trenches. Knowledgeable, interested and engaging guides. The rain added to the atmosphere but didn't impede access as the trench is so well and safely constructed. Thank you to everyone. The castle exhibition is simply exceptional.

You have posted your question on the incorrect page, this page is for Bodelwyddan Castle & Park Trust. You would need to contact Warners Hotel, which is a separate organisation.
