“Good fun for younger families”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stopped of on our way to Hull, having read some mixed reviews in the past.

The place is vast, and you could spend at least half a day here if you wanted to. Therefore the entry price represents good value for money.

Some of the history is very interesting. They have a variety of tanks, planes and field guns that you can sit on, go in etc. This is what will appeal to younger families.

There are also a variety of underground bunkers with exhibitions in them - take a jumper as they are very cold!

There is a lot of good educational content, and is all good fun.

Generally the place looks a bit careworn, but for a fun day out it seemed like good value to me.

“Grandson treat”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Really cold, windy wet day; thank goodness for the tea shop! Excellent place to take kids, they love it as allowed to touch everything and get in the tanks and bunkers etc. Lots for them to see and actually explore!

“Fort Paull”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went here today because there was supposed to be an American classic car show, there were 10 cars altogether, no real classics, there was even a ford capri and a mini? ....at an American classic car show?, the place itself was very rundown and neglected, things that would not take alot of money to put right, like exhibits with lots of green mould and rusting (pressure washer or a soapy cloth) cobwebs in many of the underground places, flaking paint causing dust and flaking paint over glass cases( a dustpan and brush?) and all the surrounding grass areas are very overgrown with blackberry brambles (a strimmer?), just time and effort is needed to improve this place....shame could be a very good place to visit

“Fantastic kids parties”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Maybe they won't thank me for this review...but have had some fantastic kids parties here...very good value and you can use the train. ..but the best bit is they allowed us to have water gun parties. ..imagine loads of kids all together all with water guns playing team games together. ..There is a tap on site near the party area. ..fantastic!!!!
Definately a different party to the usual..and no time limit either so you can set your own.
