Museum of Witchcraft (Museum, Boscastle)

According to on 18 August 2004:

"Today Graham King, owner of the Museum of Witchcraft, was able to venture into the building to witness first hand the damage left behind by the flash floods. The structural damage is severe. The lower floor is unrecognisable; 5 feet of mud fills the corridors and booth area. Display cases are upturned and contents missing.

"On a more positive note the upper floor and contents appears to be mainly undamaged, as does the library and museum archives. The Museum will take time to recover but rest assured it will be back, restored to its previous splendour."

The Museum re-opened on 25th March 2005CE.

The Look Out Discovery Centre (Tourist Information, Bracknell)

In addition to being a tourist information centre there is a small cafe, shop and toilets, with an exhibition space. It's very popular with families at the weekends, but you don't have to walk far from the adventure playground to be away from the crowds.

The car park is free, so you don't have to pay anything to visit Caesar's Camp.
