My Wife , Granddaughter who is 11, spent a couple of hours visiting on Tuesday the 16th of August. It was interesting and surprising how big this was. Highly recommended for all ages . Thought the staff were very friendly and interesting.

A most interesting visit, giving a great insight into the activities of those tasked with providing information needed in the protection of allied convoys during WW11.
