If you are into your warfare and especially into ww2 history this is the place for you. I visited with my father who had participated in ww2 and it was a joy watching his face as he went round the various huts, you could see that the place was brining back a lot of memories for him and I was...

The recommendation for this visit is 3-4 hours more like all day, it is very interesting for all ages well worth a visit I am glad I have been. The price you pay to enter is very good value

Had a wonderful day at Flamingo Land today, we purchased q buster tickets as the park was very busy. Well what wonderful staff they were at the Kumali Kiosk, Craig and Chris were both excellent but not Old Con. He kept asking what is this. Thank god the other two kept it together.

A really good day out, the camp is well set out with each bunker dedicated to a different topic. The displays were awesome and there was lots of information to read. Nice canteen selling old fashioned grub.

This is somewhere my partner has wanted to visit for years, and he wasnt disappointed. Even my teenage daughter enjoyed it, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed too. It is a little tired, and could do with some investment. our only gripe is that if you have someone who insists on reading everything on the walls, it... More

Well upon arrival we were greeted with wasps. Not just a few, hundreds. It made it hard to take in and enjoy the war camp. Wasps were inside the base camps, in the car park, on our clothing, on our food, we even saw a car covered in wasps and a desperate family diving in their car whilst at least... More

On our way to Scarborough we decided to stop at Eden Camp Cash only to gain entry to the camp and when inside a good amount of parking spaces, entry costs are reasonable and I think the whole camp is more suitable for people who have more than just a light interest in the Second World War The military equipment...

We spent the day at eden camp as a family of 5 boys aged 9 & 6 and a baby in a stroller. Fantastic day had by all fully accessible for pushchairs, so much to see and take in. We arrived just after 11 and didn't leave until closing at 5 and we only just managed to see and do... More
