Worth a visit

Great for an hours visit, great audio track gives you the history of our humble mower that we take for granted. Lots to see nothing to touch but fun all the same

Really enjoyed this unusual museum - great for an hours visit! Audio track gives you the history from horse drawn mowers to modern solar powered automatic mowers. Lots to see including various donations from celebs such as Jean Alexander, Nicolas Parsons, Paul O’Grady, Eric Morecombe etc. Interesting to see some of the mowers which I have come across over the...

The British lawnmower museum is small but packed with the very first models to the most advanced prototypes. It has special mowers from famous people like Brian May and prince Charles, my favourite mower was donated by Paul O'Grady! Well worth a visit!

The museum was amazing. It had a detailed tour with over 300 lawnmowers on display. Would recommend to anyone.

Probably not for everyone but the audio tells a good story and the whole history of mowing is on display.

Having read about this museum in Hunter Davies' book, we decided we had to visit. So glad we did. It was very interesting and we spent a good hour there. The recorded guide was very informative and the exhibits were well set out. It was like going back in time: spotting the lawnmower that your dad or Grandpa had and... More

Worse three seconds of my life. But if you love lawnmowers then this is the place to visit. They range from old to new (latest design models). Not somewhere to take your date unless they are into lawnmowers.

An ideal museum to visit on a wet day. If you have a lawn at home then this is the place to see the machines that keep it neat. A most unusual and very informative audio tour is provided and we spent over two hours wandering about the machinery. Well worth the entrance fee. Would not necessarily visit again unless... More
