This is a must see. It is a 12th Century monastery with Georgian and Victorian additions. It houses some wonderful paintings and stained glass by Burn Jones. It is also child friendly with a wonderful dressing up box and the opportunity for brass rubbings etc. Our 6 year old grand daughter says it is her favourite place. Don't miss the magnificent gardens too and the cafe..

It is a family-friendly attraction with 3 floors of British history (Victorians, Railways, Fifties), nostalgia, authentic curiosities, interactive displays. Children absolutely love it here. They wander down Victorian cobbled streets, and hear the sights and sounds of a bygone era. There is also a first world war exhibition where you are able to walk through the trenches.
