Great tour yesterday afternoon by Dale on the Classic Tour. He made it interesting and fun, and clearly enjoys history. I did a tour here 10 years ago with an older woman who was quite boring and much like a headmistress, practically telling us off because some of us needed the bathroom. Find out if you can when Dale does his tours - you won't be disappointed. He made sure to make it fun for a young girl in the group. Most tour guides pay no attention to children. I hope the curator passes on comments to the tour guides!
I'm looking forward to visiting here in September.
