    Beautiful Cathedral with long history. We really enjoyed spending time in this looked after building.

    I was initially concerned about getting to the top, but it can be done in stages. It has a fascinating history and the views from the top are wonderful.
    Sat in the grounds afterwards with a coffee from the little kiosk - though there are a shortage of benches!!!

    We were on holiday and staying at the Holiday Inn and being pensioners we used our bus passes to visit, changing buses at Chatham bus station. The driver said we couldn't enter by the main gate so dropped us off at the Outlet shop area and pointed in the direction we should go. This was some distance and involved walking past the shops and across a vast rough surfaced car park. It is a pity it is not better served by public transport.
    The cost of entry was somewhat steep we thought, although the ticket would last a year we were not expecting to return so a single visit ticket would have been nice.
    Having had my grumble, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and it was worth the price, no doubt it requires some upkeep!
    We started off with a very enthusiastic guide, Rita, at the Wooden Walls Exhibition. This was an audi visual walk through and very interesting. She also gave us timed tickets for the Ropery and HMS Ocelot tour.
    We looked round the old Lifeboats exhhibition and the Big Space, we we told there was a lift to the loft area and that was worth a visit. We were able to wonder round HMS Cavalier and Gannet as we visited and enjoyed a photographic exhibition of the Falklands War in the Gallery. The guide in the submarine Ocelot, Josh, was very knowledgeable and it was a highlight. The Ropery guide, Rose, took us through the history and my husband and another chap were assisted in making a rope, to show how it was done - albeit on a smaller scale!
    We ate in the cafe there and the food was good and not over priced. A very full day.
    We said it was a long way back to where we had got off the bus and Rose explained that we could leave by the main gate, cross the road by the subway and the bus 101 would take us all the way to our hotel withoutout having to change at Chatham. Oddly it doesnt come that way though!!

    I came here with my grandparents for a lovely, pleasant walk. We spotted lots of birds and it was nice to see so much nature. We enjoyed sitting on a bench looking out. We were going to go to the cafe but thought it too busy.

    If you have an interest in military history then this museum is well worth two or three hours of your time, it covers the Romans (briefly) through to modern day. There are some unexpected artifacts and well layed out exhibits. There are some dress up oppotunities for kids and a few hands on exhibits for all. Our one dissappointment was the cafe where food from the fridge that needed to be heated (pasties and toasted sandwhiches) could not be heated,

    Love coming to Capstone for a little walk around the lake. Doesn't take long to walk around so a couple of trips are normally enough for us, coupled with letting the kids run off some energy in the large park there. We normally bring some bird seed and feed the ducks - a nice couple of hours for the kids,

    Had a wonderful experiece at Digger land operating a JCB 3x on a one to one basis with trainer Brad. Would definitely recommend, it was fabulous. Brad puts you at ease, gives clear instructions and made me feel very confident. I absolutely loved it, thank you Brad. I am an OAP, lady, and was on my wish list to do. Although I waitedfrom December 21 Christmas Present from husband it was certainly well worth the wait, lived up to every expectation.

    The reason it has 3 is because as a family we had a great time, lots of fun and laughter also the lifeguards were friendly, happy and helpful. The deduction is due to the whole place looking tired and neglected. It's an outdoor pool so insects, leaves etc floating is pretty much expected, but the paintwork is peeling and you see that floating, with others objects too. As you go around the lazy river there are bumps for the jets, which many times, I and i saw others trip on them, some have big holes, which I caught my ankle a few times, there isn't anything to say they are there. When you are floating around or pushing a child around, you do forget where they are. It's a shame, as a good clean and paint, it would be fantastic. Maybe paint some waves on the side of the lazy river to indicate where the jets are.
    When we went it was overcast and the water is freezing
    (But you quickly get used to that) yet the poolside cafe wasn't open for a hot drink, but there is a hot food takeaway cafe just across the park, which you are given a wristband to come back in or take your own flask and snacks, there is plenty of space to sit, but there isn't any tables or.chairs, so take your own too.
    At the end of the day, we had a great time, it's just sad to see such a great place in such decline.

    Spent 2.5 hours here , a lovely home still lived in, the furnishings are 16th to 17th century all bought in by the current owners as the house was bought as a shell only and is being restored by them. A good history with knowledgeable custodians in the rooms to inform and guide you. Beautiful gardens and quite extensive well set out, fountains hedges and flowers. Well worth a visit.

    Fascinating tour of the fort, above and below ground aspects. ‘Saturday Steve’ was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide for our tour.

    An ace day at the track for a birthday party. 11 kids aged 8-13 all had the best day at a brilliantly run venue.
    Very efficient from check in through to the end, the catering staff were brilliant too, with nothing too much trouble, including some last minutes changes and additions to the food order.
    We will be back, thanks to all.
