It took a bit of finding this place through some very tortuous village streets but was well worth it! We picnicked in the designated place in a marquee outside the main entrance. There was a little café and a bar in the entrance building. Plenty...More

It's eleven euros to get into this attraction which isn't exactly cheap but you do get an audio guide in your own language to take round with you and can proceed at your own speed. This fascinating site has plenty to look at plus a...More

Freindly staff, small cafe, below ground was interesting and the recordings was informative, the lighting could be better in the fenced off tunnels etc, and it would have been better if the flue terminals where revealed above ground. The Go Ape course was brillant for...More
