Visited it with my boyfriend and loved the unique pieces there. Has dresses from 1700s. Has lingerie from the 1930s and outdoor wear too. The tea room serves great tea too!

I had previously visited the museum, but this time merely dropped by for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. Very good, and excellent value for money.

An interesting display of costumes of styles gone by presented to a high standard. A coffee shop on site providing refreshments combined with a shop selling books on costume styles and accessories.
