A much more extensive war museum than we anticipated. Well maintained. A very informed and helpful staff. At least an hour for WW2 buffs.

This place is only small but very well kept. The man on duty seemed to have a passion for the place and gave us lots of extra interesting information. A great price at £4

This underground museum is well laid out with many rooms and items as they were at the time of the occupation. Informative guide with interesting stories. Toilets but no cafe.
