Great day here. So much history. We arrived on a very hot day and the volunteers were still very happy to see us. Because it was just the two of us (because of the weather) they customised it for us. Will be back one day

Do the guided tour and get lots of interesting history from the guides. The water walk out back great and building a marvel. If you are in town take the time to do the tour really worth the effort.

When you do a tour like this the guides make it. Our guides were fantastic full of historic and present information, The walk along the bank overlooking the sea was very informative especially as we observed a big freighter heading out and the retrieval of the pilot off the ship.
