Really surprising that so many interesting features lie behind the modest facade. Delightful early 17th century courtyard built from masonry from the Dominican priory plus the Hospitallers’ chapel and information about the care they provided. All for a requested donation.

I visited St John Medieval Museum and Coningsby Hospital last week with my mum and we loved it. The volunteers were very helpful and full of interesting knowledge about how St Johns ambulance was formed. The displays were amazing and the chapel was beautiful.

This is a nice little museum housed in a lovely old building. Plenty to see for an hour or so and there is a pleasant garden area as well.

I think that would be advisable. Not sure of their telephone number but you will find them very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour and time was given to explore on our own.
