Visited today and found the House very interesting... I think the freedom to dress up made the children's day..they laughed and learned. The lady was very friendly and inform ative. Loved the fashion display and the thought of wearing those clothes was fun!

Pickford House is a little distance from the centre of Derby, but well worth the few minutes walk to find it (there is an attached car park at the rear). It was about 5 minutes from the City's main museum and art gallery. It is...More

Visiting Pickford's House is a delight. Within are period-furnished rooms with well-presented information. Currently a selection of Lady Curzon's haute couture is also on display which I found fascinating. Friendly and helpful staff (volunteers?) Entry is free, donations towards the support of this marvellous place...More
