“Friendly, Pretty Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

Came here with the family including a toddler and found the staff friendly and the place interesting. There are tea/coffee facilities and a gift shop. It's a little museum but very sweet with a nice selection of exhibits, plus there are not many places that are free!
After visiting you can walk around the grounds. I hear their tudor days are good, and many people choose to have weddings here so it is nicely kept.
