Very detailed place, full of the exploits of the Royal Marines! Informative and educational and a must for military lovers anywhere! Kids will love the playground outside, like a mini training course!

Came here with my father-in-law, a former Royal Marine. The statue by the front gate is superb and to take a photo of my father-in-law with one of his old colleagues in front of this was a great memory maker.
