So glad we chose to go here. A really good day. And a really reasonable price. Everything is really well laid out and it's all on one level which makes it easy to access. We thought there are attractions to appeal to all from 9 to 99. We saw lots of children on the day we visited and none of... More

We visited Eden Camp during the school Easter holidays with our 7 year old son. We really enjoyed our visit. There's a lot to see and do. The camp is well laid out with each hut being a mini museum covering a different aspect or period of the war. It really captures the imagination. There is a lot of information... More

Great place to visit. Loads of information. Takes a long time to read everything so perhaps just best to scan and pick up the bits that you are really interested in. Interesting smells as you go around in some huts! Great restaurant, friendly staff and good food.

There is plenty to see and it is all well signposted. there is a big canteen that plays wartime music, sirens go off regular and the sheds are kitted out with plenty to see. There is room for parking, the only downside, if... More

A very interesting place to visit. Make sure you plan on being there for a full day to take in all there is to offer. I have been back three times for half a day each time and still haven't taken it all in!
