UNLIMITED ACCESS TO OVER 400 HISTORIC PLACES
Live and breathe the story of England at royal castles, historic gardens, forts & defences, world-famous prehistoric sites and many others.
There is no coach parking on site, although visitors can be dropped off at a designated point and coaches can be parked at the local leisure centre (free of charge).
The refurbished café is set in the 15th century Parlour, a place that has always been used for conversation and socialising. In the 19th century the room became the town’s Literary institute and then a Masonic Temple! Here you’ll find locally sourced treats on the menu, teas, coffees and a variety of drinks.
Assistance dogs are welcome. All dogs on leads are welcome in the café and shop areas.
Small flower beds around the hall and the herb garden are maintained by a team of gardening volunteers.
