The pub is still well worth a visit. After a stroll along the ramparts you can reward yourself with a 'peace beer' a palatable little drink, although most of the UK microbreweries would leave it standing!

If you have relatives who were killed in the Wars, their name will follow you around the Museum. This is the most stunning Memorial to those who were killed in the Wars. Suitable for School Age and over. A must see.....
