We called in out of curiosity on our way to somewhere else, after seeing a sign pointing down a side road.The guide who showed us round was entertaining and knowledgable. It is a rolling presentation of about one hour. You turn up and join in...More
This is a one hour guided tour...you join when you arrive and leave when you get back to the point you started... what a fabulous idea. The tour is in two small rooms that have a myriad of machines that will be operated by the...More
