Our uniformed guides will take you on a detailed tour of the Museum's fantastic WW1 trench system, and describe what life was like for soldiers during the Great War. This 500ft trench system contains ‘scrape' holes, dugout, gun positions and even a tunnel, used during the period to undermine the enemy trenches that were often just a short way away.

Parents and children will also get the chance to try on uniforms, as well as handle weapons and equipment from the time, plus explore the museum and its fascinating collections
