Both my kids loved it but we didn't go in the scary part cause we were all chickens but because of that I felt it was a bit pricey and really short, there should be a lower price for those who don't go in there. However the staff were in full character which was so cool so would recommend it especially for kids.

Went in with our 4 year old and he really enjoyed it, even went in the scarry bit which he was a bit scared but made it through ok. Would recommend as entertaining for youngish kids but not if your looking for facts about pirates as one previous reviewer complained about. If you're not surr what to expect, ask before paying, staff more than welcome to explain.

Was good fun but a little bit expensive. Was still good fun tho. Younger children will love it. Also has a nice gift shop.

We were with one other couple who were strange to say the least! When we got to King Arthur she chirped in with she'd seen the series Merlin! Calico Jack our guide tried to humour her but it was totally lost on her! The tour was ok but if you have kids they would like it better! One slightly scary bit in the dark where our strange friend (in her 20s) point blank refused to go through! To be honest she made it entertaining! Good for families on rainy days especially for all young Captain Sparrow wannabes. Not bad price either.

we were the only people on the tour. When we first saw and heard the pirate showing us around, I didnt think I would be able to tolerate his shouting! He was very interesting though and we had a very interesting tour.
I think it was very expensive and probably far too much to take a large family.
