“Museum visit”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

We gor dropped of at the Museum after we did the city tour on the open top bus.
This was excellent so much to see and all fro free.
The cafe in the museum was also very good with a nice selection of coffee cakes sandwhiches etc.
Would certainly reccomend.

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

The gardens are well maintained and neat as well as retaining the rugged beauty of the local countryside, contrasting with the elegant and crumbling ruins of the old abbey. You feel almost as if you are in middle earth, bring a picnic and make a day of it,

“Poor (or non existant) sign posting does not enhance the experience.”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

This is not a cheap trip even at £6.50 concession. We didnt feel it was good value for money.
As over 60s we felt that this was a fabulous Museum with games and pro active screens for youngsters but perhaps did not offer such good value for those of our age. Perhaps we have seen too many Museums?
Staff were all helpful and friendly
