This walk-in art installation is like nothing I've ever seen before! Not what you would expect in a little market town. I loved it!

JUST GO to this unusual, quirky, fascinating house. It is utterly remarkable-each room has been so carefully curated and the audio visual element is emotive. interesting and well worth watching from start to finish.Allow 1-2 hours to really immerse yourself in this fabulous "museum".

What a find! Looks like a record store from the street but once inside it’s a warren of themed rooms taking you on a trip through time. Fantastic collection of retro memorabilia spread over 3 floors. Amazing.

Hi Becky, Sorry for the slow response. We have storage for pushchairs and prams but the nature of the listed building (i.e steps) makes it unsuitable for pushchairs. Regards Martin
