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

What started as a someones hobby has turned into a little museum - only £3 per adult along with an audio tour, takes you down memory lane, worth a visit if you are into lawnmowers, mechanical engineering and tools. Parking is time limited in the area, so choose your space wisely - or go back a little towards Southport town... More

Having struggled to find out how you actually get in here - confusingly there is an actual lawnmower shop next door, which is unrelated. He was a little vague about where the entrance lies, but nearly sold me a battery powered mower! That's what you call symbiosis. I admit to having no inherent interest in lawnmowers. It's certainly not the... More

What a collection! It is like going bacvk about 30 years and there must be more than 100 machines. Well displayed and good commentary, but old fashioned and delightful

There was an audio tour included in the admission price, which enhanced the visit, unfortunately it only covered the upper floor. It was worth a visit but nothing to rave about.

What can you say, Its a Lawn Mover Museum. They have a large selection of very olde and not so olde mowers spread over 2 floors, Not as good as I expected and it was also quite cramped fro room. Would look better it a large building for me. BUT having worked at some prestigious golf courses in my time,... More

My partner liked the lawnmower museum, his words "worth a visit, it was inspiring to see people's passion for something that might otherwise be mundane and forgotten". We both thought the guide was informative and entertaining. It was great to see lawnmowers donated by famous people and also all the old lawnmower paraphernalia and advertising through the years. Great collection,... More
