MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our visitors in 2013. We would like to thank you all for visiting the Valiant this year and wish each one of you a very merry & peaceful Christmas and a Happy & prosperous New Year. We look forward to welcoming you and any new visitors to the Valiant Soldier this coming year when we re-open from the 4th April 2014.
The Management Committee would also like to wish all the volunteers who have helped out during the year a very Merry Christmas and thank you very much for all the time & effort and hard work you have put in. Without you the Valiant would not be the experience it is. Thankyou.
We are always welcome to any group bookings. For a group of 10 or more we have a special discount on admission. As the summer holidays end we will be looking to carry out special tours by torchlight for any groups that require that something a little different. These will be starting from the beginning of October when the nights get darker that little bit earlier. See our news page for more details.
