They had decorated the table as this was a special treat for a birthday. This was our first experience of any afternoon tea and it was excellent. The tea and... More

This review is for the Restaurant, not the museum. I took my friend here for her birthday treat and we both loved it. We sat by the window which was delightful in itself. The food came out in two parts. Savoury then sweet. All the food was delicious and you tell that a lot of thought had gone into choosing.... More

I visited the tearoom at 78 Derngate with my partner. I love afternoon tea and wasn't disappointed. We were offered a selection of different tea (although settled for the usual Earl Grey!)

Lovely little museum. Compact but fascinating. The guides were excellent. Interesting video to start the tour and a couple of small art exhibitions that were quite likeable too.

This town house was decorated by Rennie Macintosh and has been restored. It is a fascinating house, right down to the art deco garden. The guides are very enthusiastic. We finished off the tour by treating ourselves to lunch in the restaurant - recommended!

I absolutely loved our day at 78 Derngate. Having been a place that Mackintosh designed and loved, it is so special to walk around and look at all his crazy, mind-blowing designs that he was so clever and brave to create! We also had a tour-guide who told us all about each room in the house - I would recommend... More

Loved the tour around with tour guide - Philip Nash. And was excited to know all about the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Design and Basett Lock the owner. A must see in Northampton.
