A most interesting attraction. It is concerned with models of soldiers, often in battle situations. There is a quiz for the kids which is based on observation. The whole thing is well thought out and worth visiting.

The people that run this are volunteers. It's a huge amount of toy soldiers. They have a family quiz that gets the kids to have a good look round. We bought a family ticket and spent about 40 mins looking round
