If I'd seen this online and read a bit more I wouldn't have chosen to go in, it's a room with artefacts and a 10 minute video .. it doesn't cost much to enter. Staff on the till was pleasant and helpful

A small museum, with a lot packed into a small space. It is not all smugglers - a lot about Daphne du Maurier, and also a lot about modern* day drug smuggling, as well as the 18th Century variety. *Many of the exhibits appear to...More
