We had a great time looking around the locksmiths house for the first time. The story by the fire and Father Christmas added to the experience. Everyone was so kind to my son with special needs and were really friendly. Will definitely be going back.

I booked the experience for my boyfriend's birthday. He thoroughly enjoyed the day and myself who spectated. Andy and Karen were very knowledgeable and great people, who made the day a fantastic experience. Bonus included a lovely lunch and plenty of refreshments. He came away having learnt the history of lock making and how to make a part for a lock and set of nails using the tools in the workshop and forge. The museum was really interesting too which we had a tour around included in the experience.

This museum we booked tickets from BCLM online. Cheap trip but we only spent like half an hour there. The volunteers were so nice and very knowledgeable so if you’re into locks you could spend a lot of time talking to the volunteers who worked in the forge or in the house demonstrating different locks etc. They knew the story and were kind. Staff 5/5 museum 2/5 as a bit dull.

Looks small from the outside but once inside it's amazing. The family home is full of fabulous things that are originals and authentic. The forge is functional and the demonstrations there were brilliant showing us how parts of locks are made. The guide talked us round the tour with interesting facts and information about the family and business. We were treated to toast on the open fire in the kitchen and made us drinks too. All in all an excellent visit!
