We walked here from the centre not far. Lovely welcome from the staff member. We spent over an hour looking round. Some very interesting stuff. The Agatha Christie section was brilliant. Well worth a visit

A great place to show the children some history. The house shows the furniture that the house had in its days, the top floor has an activity for the children to play. The old card theatre and glove puppets
