  • Visited with a school trip, it has lots of history, I was interested especially in the suffragettes. i wished I knew it was going to be like an airport when I got there, as I wouldn't have worn a belt. I hope they don't spend the millions on the building to bring it up to scratch, when that money would be better spent on other services. It was a nice experience to see where the queen sits etc. The kids loved it.
  • Had an amazing time in here, full of history and interesting facts. Well organised. Could have spent a whole day there but we had other things planned. Cafe do meal deals too and food is nice.
