The staff were lovely and friendly and I hope they enjoyed themselves as much as we did. The first workshop was about the air raids, gas masks and what it would've been like to be evacuated. They got to handle gas masks and a replica incendiary bomb, hear the gas warning rattle and the air raid siren and hide in an Anderson shelter.

I'd really recommend going there for a trip. It's only open at weekends and during schoolholidays and for special events. Other than that, you have to book a group visit for one of the 3 different workshops they do there. Thank you so much to those who organised todays outing. We very much enjoyed it and learnt a lot in the process. Just perfect :0)
