Pickford's House  image

Inside the house you will discover a ground floor dining room, drawing room and morning room as they might have been kept at the time. A Georgian bedroom and dressing room have been recreated on the first floor, while on the top floor there is a servant’s bedroom – a contrast to the finery on display downstairs.

This fascinating house also has a kitchen, laundry and scullery as it may have been in 1830. There’s also a garden to explore and a basement air raid shelter, recreated in a 1940s style – not to mention a fully-working Edwardian bathroom which is one of the museum’s toilet facility for visitors, the other being in the style of the 1930s…

You’ will also find exhibits at Pickford’s House, including a wonderful collection of toy theatres, children’s dressing-up costumes and a new porcelain collection.
