We recently had a visit to Trinity with 39 children and 9 adults. I just wanted to pass on a message from everybody who attended that they had a fantastic time. All the children are dying to go back again!! Our tour guide was lovely and the children found everything very interesting!

Columbus, Ohio

Accommodation was great, spotless clean with everything we needed for a great city break, so central to train station and city centre and we felt so safe on the grounds at night, we will definitely return for another stay and recommend to family and friends

The reception staff are friendly, the ensuite room is a good size and was spotless, and the bed was comfortable.
