A lovely place to visit. The site is very well maintained and improvements are always been carried out. Definitely worth a visit to provoke thoughts and gratitude of all the hero's who have died trying to protect us.

A place of peace and interest, the layout can be covered by sitting in the train and receiving a very interesting commentary from the driver, they will answer questions too. Felt very close to family who are no longer with us

A most enjoyable day out for any age. Loads to do and see. If you know anyone in the forces or just want to learn more this is the place to come. Food wise you can have a full meal or just a cup of tea and a cake or even take along your own picnic.

A wonderful day's visit. Plenty of interesting things to do and see with every effort made for those who are perhaps unable to walk the considerable distance round the whole site. We took the visitors train which helped us to decide where to walk to later in the day. The memorials were inspirational and the separate building and exhibition for... More
