We visited here on a lovely sunny day in April, both the Hall and the Museum of Childhood are well worth a visit the museum to relive your childhood and the Hall for the lovely carvings and art work. There is a good Café and a gift shop as well as lovely clean toilets.

My children enjoyed the museum and there are lots of interactive exhibits, as well as helpful friendly staff. We also went in the house which is a bit 'boring' for younger kids but very nice indeed for adults! The gardens are... More
