History- boring. Civil War- worthy and pompous.
This place is amazing, made fascinating by excellent presentation of real interest. Very personalised- for one part there were just the two of us and a re-enactor.
It was indeed interesting and humorous, and we learned facts we'd never known before, and saw aspects we'd never thought of in events and life in the past.
Parking is right outside, but beware, you'll need to pay for more than 2 hours (not expensive but the whole thing can take nearly 3, and if you stop for a coffee or snack you'll go into the fourth hour.
We handled muskets, we took part in military tactics, we looked at clothing, the customs and attitudes, we walked around a herb garden. We went out into the dark of Torrington streets in 1646, and saw bodies, punishments. And it would have interested the PlayStation generation as much as it did us!
