Go back in time and visit this traditional workshop that has not changed in 150 years. See all the various tools, the filing systems hanging from the ceiling and the various mmebers of family business working. Order something special or see the shop next door.

The silversmith Harts is a remarkable survival, from the time of Ashbee and others, and when visiting do consider giving them a commission. The Gallery has a good range of affordable creations, and the Campden Coffee shop wears its heart on its sleeve, everything well-made, full of honesty, taste and flavour, with love and delight.

A lot of effort and love appears to have gone in to preparing this place for the local community and travellers to visit. Many different exhibtions and a well presented collage on the history of Chipping Campden.

The gallery contains a wide variety of work - painting, collage, pottery, jewellery, glass, furniture and many other media - ranging from the quirky to the sublime. The silversmithing workshop upstairs is fascinating. The coffee shop is comfortable and shabby chic in style, with a good choice of teas and coffees, and some lovely cakes/biscuits, all at reasonable prices. Well... More

I only see one room of exhibition. Although the exhibition is informative and gives a good history overview, I first thought that was just an introduction to the whole museum. When I found out that was the only room to see, I felt rather upset as the entrance fee of four pounds is not quite cheap. They also had another... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I wonder if you have perhaps confused us with Court Barn Museum near St. James's Church as we do not charge an entrance fee and have a lovely coffee shop, historic silversmiths, thriving artists co-operative and an award winning jeweller to visit spread across two floors. Do give us a... More

Sheep Street where the Old Silk Mill is located is well worth a visit if you are visiting the most delightful town of Chipping Campden, probably the prettiest village in the Cotswolds. Within the mill is the wonderful gallery with works of more than twenty artists on display , from watercolours to oils to pottery to excellent and eye-catching sculptures... More

A time warp! Truly amazing trip back in time and a small selection of items to purchase. The skills have been passed down through the generations. Truly a family business and top quality craftsmanship.

The Old Silk Mill is worth taking some time to visit. Local artists display their work and many also work on site. Harts Silversmiths is wonderful. Our children love seeing sheets of silver, half made items and beautifully finished items. Not only does it look and feel like you're stepping back in time but you will be welcomed by the... More
