Well worth the £1 entry fee. So much crammed into a few small rooms. A real piece of history. Lovely artefacts really fascinating for anyone interested in crafts or costumes

I didn't know what to expect. Small, but intense. Ha brought back memories of childhood when artificial flowers were an every day thing.

From the early 1900s a fabric flower makers shop - still active - but with a museum. Buy something as a memento but look at the hand work and skill and minute detail that goes into making flowers- that you might take for granted. They...More

This tucked away museum was a lovely find, fascinating memorabilia and friendly staff. Well worth the £1 entrance fee. Literally 10,000 different tools, so many cutting shapes, and some lovely tiaras made with wax flowers and pearls. It is very cosy and the 2 rooms...More

On first sight this place seems like a shop selling fake flowers, albeit of a very high standard. (By the way the name of the shop is 'Shirley Leaf and Petal' so you might not realise that downstairs there's an absolutely fascinating little museum where...More

In the High Street, this small shop hides a museum (entrance £1.00) entirely dedicated to the manufacture of artificial flowers and foliage used in Stage productions, films, television, on ladies garments, for weddings, Hotel floral displays, etc., etc. Everywhere you look there are the tools...More

I actually visited the museum last year but somehow missed reporting on it. At the lower end of the old High Street it is a very short walk from the seafront. The museum area is downstairs in the basement. Actually it is not simply a...More
