Travelled over 100 miles to visit this place and we weren't disappointed! It is truly an amazing place if you are interested in the history of war. It is an eye opener with fascinating, informative information, pictures and stories but beware as some of it can be very distressing to see/read. You would have to spend at least a week... More

We have wanted to go, for years, & while on holiday in Pickering, did so. We arrived at 11am, & were about the last to leave, at 5pm. There was so much to see, that we just ran out of time. The Blitz St, was excellent, darkened & great sound effects. We will go again, & perhaps have time to... More

On our recent trip here we were advised it would take 2 to 3 hours to see whole attraction, well we were there for 5 hours and if we had read all the information and looked at every exhibit it would have taken us another 5 hours It was a great day out especially if you have an interest in... More

Good day for all the family! We spent a good few hours looking around all of the individual 20+ huts, each had something of interest in it, a authentic smell or noise, photos or experiences! Very interesting. Then we had a picnic and finished the day with ice cream. There are places to eat either food brought in or bought... More

This is an amazing ww2 war museum with so much detail and nostalgia that it makes you proud to be British. The cafe was amazing too. I ate a plate of stew n dumplings which brought a tear to my eye because it's just like my gran used to make.

Visited on Friday with my husband. Our 2nd visit as went a long time ago when it first opened. The entry price of £6.50 is pretty reasonable and the fact that they don't except credit cards etc, I think is rather nice and keeps within the spirit of the era. You make your way through about 25 numbered huts, each... More

This former prisoner of war camp has been turned a brilliant attraction and should appeal to all age groups. Each hut portrays a different part of life during the war years. You can even walk through a submarine! For the older visitor, it will bring back memories of living through those times. For younger visitors, a chance to teach them... More
