The leaders were incredibly knowledgeable and gave just the right amount of information pitched at the correct level. The children really enjoyed their visit. I loved the practical elements to it, which meant that all children were engaged and learning..

The farm was fascinating and the children loved going in the recreated buildings. The museum was great too, there were so many things they could handle. It was a brilliant day and we all learned such a lot in a short time. It really brought history to life for us. Thank you.
