    This is a great way to spend a few hours .. very big inside, cells bit spooky! As it is haunted .shocking when you enter the condemned mans cell and how they spent their last hours ! Roy the guide was just great . The restaurant was very cheap great menu and portions really must get a meal there after. Restaurant is accessible to everyone don’t need to do tour.

    This was an interesting place to visit. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and answered any questions the group had. There is a lot of walking involved and the trip into the tunnel under the road might not be for all. The tour lasted approx 90 mins. There is also a nice coffee shop and a restaurant on site.
