    A very interesting collection of working replica siege engines with excellent presentation from engaging actors. Both fun & educational for young and old alike,especially for kids. The presentation and demonstration of the engines , forges, armoury and coin minting lasts around 1.5 to 2 hours and is continuous so just join and leave as you like.

    Very disappointing and clearly overpriced. Only one guy in charge of a hord of 60 visitors. Only 5 or so kids get to try out the equipment. Very long explanations geared towards adults rather than kids. Not worth the money because understaffed. The lady just said they weren't expecting so many visitors (height of summer in August). Waste of an afternoon.
