Visited Eden camp not expecting too much but was very impresssed with the overall layout, attractions and experience. For around £6.50 you are presented with 28 large huts each showcasing various themes from the two world wars including a submarine, blitz, shops, theatre, cinema and holocaust exhibit. There are no high tech gimmiks to spoil the authenticity of the displays... More

Brilliant, just brilliant. Very cheap only £6.50 for an adult. Allow a full day. As the camp consists of about 28 huts, if its raining it does not matter. Remember a jumper or jacket as even in the heat of the summer the huts are cool. The café is superb, with quality main meals and snacks at very reasonable prices.... More

I visited here with a friend a few weeks ago, we thought 2-3 hours max, we stayed all day. If you have any interest at all in the Wars/Social History then Eden Camp is not to be missed. Some of the exhibits may be a little rough and ready but none the worse for that. We spent a considerable time... More

Visited as an adult recently. It's still very good, and well done. I hadn't been since I was at school until this, and very much enjoyed it.

What a great place. Really good to see the camp preserved as it was. The huts are full of fascinating stories, depictions and even smells from the war. A lot of effort and attention to detail has gone into a great attraction. I would definitely recommend it for young and old.

Just returned from Whitby weekend, this camp was an excellent place to visit for people of all ages. We will definitely return when the weather is warmer. The poor POW's must have been frozen during there stay there.

We stopped here on our way home from a weekend at whitby and we all had a great time looking round all the huts. Very interesting, educational and authentic. Well worth the entrance fee!!
