Great place to visit. I've wanted to go for years and now I have. Price is very reasonable and the food is reasonably priced too. We didnt have a meal, only a snack, but the food look really nice and you got plenty of it. It says to provide 3-4 hours to look round, but we were there for 5hrs... More

I've visited this amazing place as a teacher with school parties and with my own family. I can't recommend it highly enough. Excellent value for money; a full day out; educational; interesting and emotional. The atmosphere is incredible. I never tire of visting Eden Camp.

This is a very interesting museum, but there is really too much to read in one visit, especially in the winter when you get quite cold in the unheated huts. The exhibits gave a good impression of life in England during the second world war and amongst other things highlighted the many contributions of women to the war effort. It... More
