I recommend it as it’s good. Mind you me head though when you go on The Alliance as you will clonk it otherwise. The guides were very informative too. The galley (food place) is also good value and the lady was cheery.

Very interesting museum giving an insightful look at live on board. Too expensive at £18 per person.

This is the ideal place to walk around while waiting for your slot to have a guided tour of the submarine (or while waiting for the next ferry). The museum is not very big, but is well laid out, and there is an excellent film...More

Although they have cut access doors fore & aft in the hull of Alliiance,this does not detract from the close quarters found on a 2nd World War sub.Everything is fully visible with guides to inform you.
