Reasons for trip

We prebooked our tickets online, a saving of £1.95 each. The attraction takes small groups through the site at 15 minute intervals, everyone queues up, booked or not. Although there is a sign outside asking you to wear a mask, this is not enforced, so it’s up to the individual to protect themselves. The attraction leads you through multiple rooms each set up in chronological order starting in the Viking era, each room is a stage set with an actor dressed for their time, performing an amusing “history” from their time. The use of temperature, smells, moisture all adds to the fun. The whole experience is in dimly lit rooms, meandering through corridors/alleyways with uneven floors, all adding to the experience.

We went on a damp afternoon in late October, we had done enough sightseeing, and were a little weary, it was just the ticket, we enjoyed the sets, the actors, it was all managed well.

This is not just an attraction for kids, which I had expected, our group was all adults, of varying age, from the comments overheard it seemed to be unexpectedly enjoyed. It took around 45 minutes to go around, exit via a gift shop!
