Day four-a visit to HMS Caroline

I decided to take the kids to HMS Caroline out of my own curiosity but what a surprise. We all had a fantastic time. It didn't seem very busy which was great as we strolled around at our leisure. The audio tour was excellent and it was a game in itself to spot the points we had to point our audio wands to to get more history.
None of us knew anything about the ship but to learn in this way brought it all to life. The introductory film helped bring us back in time at the beginning of the tour.

The fitting out of the ship was excellent and we could easily see the differences between the various levels of staff comforts.

The staff were very friendly when seen but also rather invisible which allowed us to get on with our tour at our own pace.

The interactive activities were excellent helping the kids understand the methods of communication at that time.

It ŵas a bit blowy on deck

The only negative aspect was that the car park was quite a but away. No problem for us as it was a dry day but for someone a bit frailer or in winter weather would be miserable walking from car park.
