  • Very interesting exhibition and great experience to stay in Hougoumont itself. Highly recommend it as a base for exploring the battlefield and surroundings.

  • A sombre place that has an atmosphere. It has guided tours but they only scratch the surface of what went on here. The video show is a little date and could be improved in my opinion.
  • Went there as part of a visit to the Waterloo battlefield during the anniversary weekend, when there is a major re-enactment with canon, cavalry and even a Napoleon impersonator doing the rounds. It was excellent. I was also lucky enough to bump into the excellent people from Waterloo Uncovered. Look them up if you don't know what they do and watch their YouTube channel which has loads of great information about Hougoumont and the battle of Waterloo. Minor criticisms of the visitors site as a whole were that food and drink can be pricey and there is nowhere to refill water bottles leaving you having to buy water from the vendors on site with all the extra expense and plastic waste that creates. If you go specifically for the re-enactment be prepared that there was no English commentary so you need to have a good grasp of the events of the battle before you go, otherwise it can all be a bit confusing. Overall though a really good place to visit.
