    Fabulous tour with an expert historical rendition from tour guide Tony and supported by bell ringer David. The information delivered by Tony was both interesting as well as factual, he clearly has a warm appreciation of this magnificent building, parts of which are a thousand years old! To see the internal structure of the roof and bell tower really demonstrated the complexity and engineering design of this magnificent ancient structure. The views from the top of the building provided a wonderful 360 degree view of the City and surrounding countryside. This tour is an absolute must and I'm confident that you won't be disappointed!
    Be sure to visit the on site cafe which provided a nice environment as well as good coffee.

    We weren’t sure how it would be taking a 3 year old child but we were pleasantly surprised. There were quite a few interactive activities and a lovely lady also helped our child do some arts and crafts which I think was part of their Valentine’s Day theme, visiting in February. It was great being able to go into some of the aircraft too. Not the hugest place in the world - I’m sure if we didn’t have a child with us we’d stay a lot longer, but with children it’s more of just a morning out or afternoon out. All staff we interacted with were very friendly and clearly passionate about what they’re doing. Will be returning thank you!

    Where to take our grandaughters? - we decided on this museum and we are so glad we did. We parked in Westminster Lodge, so we had a good walk to burn up some energy and then enjoyed the museum. Their staff were very friendly, and helpful. The lady who talked to the girls about the artifacts was very patient and did an excellent job of helping to consolidate what they had seen and learnt. Thank you. They enjoyed the craft work and following the trail. Making mosaics was great fun two. It was easy to follow and even though it did become busier it wasn't that crowded. We shall definitely take them back again. It was clean and the exhibits well cared for and presented. Showed all about life in Roman times with many artefacts to look at.

    Overall great day out .

    last year we went to Tullys farm which is now well overpriced and won't be returning,
    this is why we travelled 75mins in opposite direction as friends recommended Willows,

    NOT disappointed as staff were great always happy to help.
    Santa was great Knew my child name which he loved and wasn't rushed at all,
    loved the toy shop, kids can pick own present rather than getting random one,
    build bear was good no force sale on extras,
    the day was fun and not busy,
    its expensive everywhere nowadays but you felt like money well spent here ,.
    everything was including which I like as too many charge extra for anything they can ,

    Skating wasn't great as fake rinks , I didn't see anyone skating but just walking around,
    my wife can skate and said as he couldn't as not good at all.

    FOOD well talk about expensive , shocking prices nearly £9 per adult and £7 for a child, , no excuse for this as just basic food, wanted something hot as very cold but got robbed,
    also coffee,
    I pay £3.50 at Costa and thats good coffee so I don't know where you get nearly £4 for tassels coffee very disappointing ..

    muffins £4 WHY,

    The day is great well presented and would come back,,

    I won't be buying any food or drinks from there again

    It has lots of history. Lovely volunteers to explain everything. Fresh bread to buy.

    Very steep staircases up to the upper floors. Could be a little tricky to climb for young children and some elderly.

    Definitely worth a visit.

    Wonderful working engine in the building next door.

    We visit regularly. Miles of lovely walks and great views. Car park, but no toilets. Great for dogs. However, on this visit (bank holiday Monday) there was shooting in the distance, which frightened our dog, so went home early.

    I had a good look around town and was very interested to learn of the history of this unique building by way of an information board at the side of the tower.

    We went for a visit to Aylett nursery. They have a really good all round stock of plants and equipment to buy. Then we went to the restaurant and found good selection of food especially gluten free food at reasonable prices and delicious as well. The staff in the restaurant were very helpful and pointed out all the gluten free items on the menu, father than me having to look on the app. I would recommend this nursery to everyone. Ron

    The home of George Bernard Shaw and his wife. Steeped in the history of his life. Very interesting.
    We were able to pick fresh apples off the trees, no cost.
    Great volunteers, very knowledgable.

    Fascinating talking to the volunteers at this lovingly preserved signal box today. Very good demonstration of the exacting work of a signal man which included meticulous record keeping. Lots of memorabilia and retired railwaymen keen to share their enthusiasm. Well worth a visit.

    We were unable to shop in Burston garden centre today, as we were carrying our puppy. Can’t believe a garden centre has banned dogs. We’ve shopped at the centre many times over the years, but will now take our business to Ayletts where they were very accommodating. It is a shame that disrespectful dog owners have ruined the experience of shopping at Burston for others with dogs.

    I was very pleased to discover a free car park next to the River Lea virtually in the centre of the village. It is signposted just off the High Street.

    I discovered a couple of maps at the old railway station which I would definitely recommend a visit to. There are trails around the village itself as well as trails a little further out of the village into the countryside and surrounding areas.

    There are lots of different building to discover within the village and I particularly enjoyed the Crinkle Crankle Walls and community garden.

    It's a very picturesque village and well worth a visit.
