We were part of a coach tour, I found the museum to be so interesting, seeing the remains of the camp and ‘Harry’ was just bringing the whole ‘great escape’ story to life.
We also stopped at the nearby cemetery.
The museum has added a number of artifacts that have been donated since I was last there. Just as good as it was. We then went to Harry in the woods about 1 mile away and also see where the resevoir was and also the...More

The train station is close to the actual camp and where the actual tunnels were. It is a good mile + walk both ways from the station then there is the memorial behind the station to the executed 50 which again is 1/2 mile walk. not sure about taxi service as I was on my motorcycle and drove up the dirt track to the site
RAF Officers would have been in East or North camp. The whole site covers all of the camps. Contact the museum, they are very helpful. We were given a tour of East camp by a member of staff which was excellent. Search for... More
