Very interesting and informative. Herb garden good along with the audio section in the ladies' tower which gave an insight into two lady prisoner's lives.

A small museum in a historical setting with lots of corners to explore and a wealth of interesting history, from ship wrecks to the origins of Little Bo Beep. Very manageable in a short space of time.
