  1. Clare Barlow

    I found the experience most enjoyable. The tour was easily manageable walking around the centre then to the museum. Our guide was clear and very knowledgeable she was able to enthuse us all with her passion. We were able to have flexibility at the museum afterwards. We all thoroughly enjoyed this. Well done.
