Would you like to visit the museum, but can’t make one of our open days? Do you know someone with Special Educational Needs that would benefit from a trip with a quieter environment? Or are you a teacher and would like to bring a class for an educational trip out? Our 1879 police station, and 1895 Court room make the perfect setting for Victorian projects and atmospheric visits.

Then why not consider our private tours? Run on a Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in term time. Days for private tours will be reduced during school holidays when we extend our public hours.
