Oh dear! It all went from bad to worse! Firstly we arrived on what I think proved to be the coldest day in November. We were told that there were some school parties visiting, but that they would be leaving soon. Well, they didn't and...More

It takes a good while to go properly go round Eden camp. Very informative. Very interesting. Bigger than expected. Although prisoners of war, they had a good life there. Lots to take in but would highly recommend
