This place is ok but it's very short and not really worth the money. Best part was the dressing up but that's not great the lady at the desk was very friendly.

This fascinating small museum tells the compelling story of the Huguenots - French protestants who were forced to leave France to escape religious violence and came to England. It tells how how they arrived with nothing but their skills and worked in weaving, clock making,...More
