The farmers market was there and it gives an old fashioned backdrop to it to increase authenticity. The market prices are a bit high but the food is all of an excellent standard and very tasty. The wine and beer is also pricy but great quality.

Went here many times as a child and liked the dragon exhibit and the cannons outside. Liked the English heritage gift shop and war galleries.

Access is through a cobbled entrance which you pay entry in the shop (3 steps up to get inside). Only one door has wheelchair access although they say they can get a ramp for you (none seen around or many staff to help put it in place if there was one). About 40% is upstairs with no lift etc as... More

Museum of the KOSB Regiment with a lot to see. Takes a bit of time to go round. Gives a good spectrum of life in a regiment with a lot of history in Georgian barrack block. Sadly the town museum was closed.

Lots to see, fantastic place but could have done with having a tearoom. Well worth a visit. Parking just across the street and handy for going into town centre for a browse.
