I had heard about the battle of Waterloo but knew very little about it until I visited the toy soldier factory. What a great exhibit they have. And a fantastic video. Suitable for kids as the graphics are so good.
The soldiers are beautiful- such attention to detail.
This is a great place for all ages. I really enjoyed the Battle site and Video. Kids will really enjoy the lesson on how to make the soldiers and enjoy looking at the soldiers themselves.
Check out their website. If u want to give someone a present of a high end chess set- their sets are beautiful.

We made this stop strictly by the roadside sign and what a great idea it was. We received a warm welcome and informative demonstration of how they cast pewter figurines. You can tour the facility and see the whole process from start to finish. They have workshops ready to go so you cast and paint a variety of designs. We decided to stay so our children could partake. It was a load of fun and a great memory made!

Excellent place to visit. We arrived quite late in the day yesterday but the lady could not have been more nice or helpful. She showed the kids a demonstration then they got to paint a fairy door and a bunny for our boy and fairy for our girl. She then stayed back so we could watch the Waterloo film and see the exhibit. Our 9 year old said it was the best thing he has done all week and boy have we done a lot of things. Wish it was closer to Dublin but can't wait to try out our home kits especially melting the metal.
