You have to go here, but the way it is laid down is a little bizarre. Various attractions within one area - the memorial, museum, panorama and Lion's Mound itself. Access to the underground museum is not particularly well signed, but the museum itself is modern and airy. Lots of stuff for children to do, and visually appealing. If you... More

The new visitor centre is, frankly, weird. We went in and bought the "all attraction" ticket, and then promptly couldn't work out how to get to the Lion Mound or Panorama as there were no signs. Eventually, we found them (they're round the corner past the shop). The Lion Mound - albeit that it spoils the battlefield - is worth... More

The view from the top of the mound of the Waterloo battlefield was excellent, and as we also had a guide he was able to point things out to give an overall perspective of the battle

great spot for the family and history buffs, free easy parking, a few restaurants with in walking distance, tickets well worth the price to see everything. The new visitors center was amazing and would go back in a heart beat to see it again, it was very well put together and extremely informative.

A wonderful place to visit for all. There is a beautiful museum that is located underground with wonderful history and interactive exhibits and artifacts depicting the battle of Waterloo in 1815. There is a 15 minute, lifelike, 3D movie that takes you into the battlefields that is also worthwhile. If it's raining, one can access the Panorama through a tunnel... More

The Lion's Mound is a great place for both adults and children. The views from the top of the mound are beautiful and the nearby museums do an admirable job in acquainting the visitor with the local history. The gift shop has a surprising number of interesting and well made souvenirs. The Lion's Mound is definitely a place to visit.

Just a fantastic place to visit for both adults and children, although the kids may get to the top of the hill before dad.

We visited the Lion's Mound, Panorama & 1815 Museum the day before the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. We were surprised to find that there was little signage or organisation considering it was so close to the celebrations, we did manage eventually to find where we had to go. The 1815 Museum is located underground, there was no... More

We learned so much about european history, the roots of the french revolution, human rights, napoleon and his raise and fall. Don't miss the 3D film in the museum
