Explore the fascinating world of the Victorian judges at this award-winning historic house.

Our Favourite Things

The new community exhibition has arrived! Bringing together on show for the first time, some of the real highlights of the local history collection, including Victorian mourning clothes, toys made by German POWs, the oldest Jury ballot box in Europe and much more. Star of the show is an Ethiopian Emperor's shield, which earned two national awards for its conservation in 2015.

 

Admission to this exhibition is totally free (charges apply to visit our period rooms)

Haver a go at our accompanying family trail too, which will run throughout all school holidays whilst the exhibition is on - we promise you, it's hilarious!
