  • Great place to explore, my 6 year old son just lowed visit in this beautifully preserved fort. Entrance is absolutely free and parking too so instead we spend money in a gift shop. There is cafe at entrance and couple picnic tables right next to canon firing display!!! Overall one of my favourite places to visit with nice historical past.

  • What a fabulous place. Guns galore. Every artillery piece imaginable. Terrific displays. Great for families. Free entry and free parking. Nice cafe with outside seating.

  • Great place to explore. There's not enough to make a whole day of it unless you're really into guns and cannons, but the kids enjoyed the tunnels and museum pieces for a couple of hours. Considering this is all for free, I thought this was excellent.

  • This place is a must if you like BIG guns. Part of Saddam's pipe and a WW1 railway gun here. The cafe and the staff are all great too

  • Great place to visit and free entry! Regular special events in the summer including canon demonstration etc. Lovely cafe serving meals, coffee, cakes and alike. Often stop here when out on the bike.
