A fascinating glimpse into a past that is part of our local heritage. Children especially should see this but well worth anyone's visit.

Went at the weekend and I do like Ribchester and it’s history and was looking forward to seeing the museum. Wasn’t expecting a massive place but it’s literally just a house with some artefacts in a big room. For the price of £4 as well...More

Wasted half a day coming across from Yorkshire to visit the site to find the place well and truly closed despite being advertised as open from 10. Waited an hour and gave up! The church - St Wilfred’s is well worth a visit.
