Half Term Fun:

Georgian life

Sat 10 - Sun 18 Feb 2018

Suitable For

Families

This February half term hear stories of highwaymen and discover surprising details about crime and punishment in the Georgian and Regency periods.

At 11am, 1pm & 3pm we dare you to come and meet Thomas Turlis, the executioner, and his gallows! And if that wasn't quite grisly enough, head inside the visitor centre at 12pm or 2pm to see what exactly was used to punish those who were deserving…

Each session lasts approx. 25 - 30 minutes.
