We thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the Western Approaches once we'd found it! There was so much of interest to see and learn about. Amazing that it lay untouched and forgotten for so many years after the war ended Lucky enough to see a reenactment of the Sinking of the Bismarck in the control room . You need more than 1.5 hours to see it all properly.

It was a fabulous afternoon. So much to see & we met lots of great people. The reenactment was brilliant. I got completely lost in as it was natural the acting. I even felt sad. Well worth a visit.

Only a small museum but well worth a visit. Shows you exactly what went on in world war 11 and a good experience to see in the underground world they lived in. Great features and information.

Really informative. Videos that you could sit down and watch really helpful too providing background. Uniforms good to see.

Lots to see. So very interesting. So much I hadn't known
