Excellent afternoon out

Went here for the afternoon with a friend, it's dog friendly so took the dog along too. It's an excellent place to visit in Weymouth and would highly recommend it.

Really interesting place to visit and very often have special events on, I've been here several times with Jnr (now 9) and he loves it. Lots to see, very educational and fun to. If they do it, go see the WWII Experience where the volunteers will take you back in time. Oh yes the place is run by volunteers and... More

Lots to see and do; kept our granddaughters stimulated and occupied all morning; lunch good and prices reasonable. Take the kids and count the mice - totally absorbing and it gets quite competitive 😊

A very tranquil place, it lovely all year round. I prefer the Autumn as I love walking in the leaves fallen from the trees. The views across to Portland and over the harbour are stunning. Summer time again a good place for a stroll

This is an interesting place if you like cannons and forts. They have made a real effort to make it as interesting as possible, but make sure you go when the local bus is still running otherwise it's a long walk back if you haven't got a car.

Family Sunday afternoon outing (2 adults, 2 boys 11 and 8). Much much more to see and do than expected. We were there for a couple of hours and didn't manage to complete the tunnel exhibits. Amazing views across to Weymouth bay and across to Portland. Didn't try the cafe, so can't comment on catering. Day ticket can be upgraded... More
