SPEAKER 1: I'd been longing to visit such a mystical site, you know, the huge
stones, the dramatic setting. But I was really disappointed when I got there:
you can't get that near, there is a fence all around them, they're not nearly as
big as you think they are from the photos and on top of all that you have to pay
an entrance fee when there isn't even a museum or anything like that.
SPEAKER 2: I thought we'd go as a treat for my son for his fifth birthday. We
were expecting to see a wide range of animals living in a natural habitat, with
plenty of interesting information about them. Instead what we found was a shabby
mishmash of rundown and sometimes abandoned cages crammed into a tiny corner of
Regent's Park. We couldn't get out fast enough.
3: We'd planned a family day out without realizing that it was going to
cost us an absolute fortune if we paid on the door. It would have been much
cheaper to book online, but we didn't know that was an option. Apart from that,
when we got there the staff were rude, the queues were a nightmare, and the
rides were pretty mediocre if you ask me.
4: I'd seen the towers and battlements from the train, so as I like
historic buildings I decided to visit it. It's supposed to be Britain's Greatest
Mediaeval Experience, but I have to say that for me it seemed like a Hollywood
film set and it was all a bit, er, surreal - there was even this really strange
waxwork figure of the young Winston Churchill who apparently 'might have
visited' at some time.
