COMPLETE THE MEMBERS' EVENT SURVEY
"The guided tour at Southwick House was probably the best guided tour I have ever experienced and the guide in the underground tunnels was absolutely the right man for the job. Not an academic like his counterpart upstairs but very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I learned a huge amount from both of them and I would highly recommend this particular event."
"The Draklow Tunnels afternoon was a great experience that I would thoroughly recommend. The Guide was excellent, so knowledgable and approachable and you could tell he really loved the project. I felt a bit like Indiana Jones exploring a place forgotten after the Cold War. I will definitely go again!"
"The Guide was quite outstanding in his attitude, knowledge of the subject and his marvelous ability to put this across to a wide range of members in the party. He made Cleeve Abbey come alive and recounted information from basic day-to-day grind to etherial and factual details which were textured with pathos and colour - thank you Michael and English Heritage."
"..The passion that the event leads pass on is always intoxicating...We were buzzing all the way back from Dover Castle to Birmingham."
"A wonderful experience given by a passionate historian who wanted to share her knowledge."
"It was EXCELLENT - our guide was interesting and informative and fun!"
"I was amazed at the time these experts gave to our small group. I felt really privileged to have taken part. I learned a great deal and really appreciate the work English Heritage is doing to save our historic buildings. A fabulous event we both thoroughly enjoyed thank you all very much."
