Love this place - so authentic and moving. Even the canteen serves war time fayre - meat pie & stew & dumplings were excellent. The attention to detail was incredible - it even tells you on a blackboard what was happening 65 years ago in WWII on the day of your visit. Really well thought out lay out - all wheelchair friendly - basics are spot on too - loads of loos, picnic tables & benches. I find it hard to believe that any visitor could comment negatively about this place. It is really cheap to get in (£5 per adult) & I don't know how they manage to keep the place running on such low entry fees. You need at least 4 hours to do a visit justice & lunch is a must in the canteen, tea room or cinema bar. The little puppet show is really quaint & funny - kids loved it - basic formula of sing song & water pistols worked a treat! Small children may find the place a little scary but ours (twins aged 4) coped with hands held & lots of make believe explanations. Our elder child aged 9 was really interested & moved by what she saw. I was particularly moved by the items the Italian POWs had made during their stay at Eden Camp. A little pair of shoes made entirely from rope for the local farmer's daughter were particularly poignant. This place really brings the emotion, horrors and heart warming stories of WWII to life & left me with feelings of gratitude & sadness for those who lived & died through it.
