Once we found this place, the staff were most welcoming and friendly. While waiting for our tour we had a brief look around the well laid out visitor centre. Our tour guide was very informative, really bringing the place alive.

You will only need to book in advance if you have 10 or more people in your group. Otherwise, you can just turn up and book on to the next available tour. I hope that helps!
