Great place to house a museum. Worth going to see the WW1 tank. Mostly indoors, so great wet weather venue.

This is a great place to take children, particularly on the themed days. They can see the old fashioned shops and even buy old fashioned sweets and it is free!!

Well worth a visit, it gives a real insight into life for our ancestors. Rooms are displayed exactly as they were throughout time and there are also examples of shops which have been stocked with goods of the era. Its located just a short walk from the castle and best of all its free. Something of interest for all ages.
