Visited the museum in May 2017 with 2 small kids (4yo and 1yo). It was a nice experience, with lots of old carriages in which we could see with a torchlight (placed at visitors' disposal in the museum). To our surprise, the kids didn't get...More

A carriage museum? Our son said "It's boring". No it isn't. Carriages are lovely, with a great sense of history. It isn't big but the better for it. Go and immerse yourself in yesteryear. You will not be disappointed

My kind of place but not suitable for youg kiddies. Actually I'm a classic car fan but a museum of horse drawn carriages and the way coachwork was built is equally interesting. Well worth the visit I loved the cabriolets and the All Sain't church...More

A mere £2 per adult entry & so much history! I must admit to not being that interested when I went in (the other half wanted to go) but with the expert help of the Man at the desk (David?) it was absolutely fascinating! He...More
