Eden Camp offers a Fantastic Wartime Day Out

Creator: gaz11h    Length: 3 min  46 sec

Eden Camp in North Yorkshire originally became a prison camp in 1942, built to house prisoners from Italy and Germany during World War II.

In 1986 the camp was bought by a local businessman and made into a unique museum of wartime life and history.

The prison huts house displays showing what life was like at the camp, and in Britain in general during this period.

Although the huts are small, there's plenty to see, including a re-created wartime street, and re-creations of the blitz, a u-boat interior, and a diorama of the Dambusters attacks in 1943.

There are around 30 huts in total, so there's plenty to see, including air-raid shelters, replicas of famous wartime aircraft and a range of military vehicles on display.

A day out at Eden Camp is both entertaining and educational for adults and children alike. Watch this video for a great overview of what's on offer.
