Overall rating

4.7 / 5

The tour was really good and informative, our “midwife” Irene was very knowledgeable and explained about the filming, various scenes and events along the way so that fans of the programme could relate to it. The exhibition was good but a bit small and the gifts were also disappointing. We had a lovely sunny day so it made it easier to walk around and enjoy some other areas of the site. I would recommend it to CTM fans as they will relate to it as I did.

I have never watched the programme Call the Midwife Was just there to company my wife who loves the programme Yet I found the tour interesting mainly because our guide,,Irene was excellent at portraying the programme and making it enjoyable 10 / 10
