I've just had my lawnmower cutters sharpened. The mower cuts just as well as it did when new - brilliant Reasonably priced quick service.

My Dad is a machine enthusiast so I decided to take him to see this unusual museum. Specifically focused on British machines for cutting grass from scythes to ultra-modern robots this museum should have a very narrow appeal, however the enthusiasm of the displays combined with the large number of rare and unusual machines in the collection make this a...

Being a bit of an anorak, I was really keen to see this museum, and I wasn't disappointed. Beautifully kept, stuffed with items and with an amusing audio commentary to guide you through it. So worth the £3 entry fee.

Didn't know such a place existed until we visited Southport. What a great museum for gardeners, historians and engineers alike. Well done to the owner and staff in keeping this museum going. A modest entrance cost is very worthwhile.

The family were doing some shopping in Southport, so I decided to have a look at this as I have a few different mowers. I wasnt disappointed, the place is rammed with all sorts of mowers, and grass cutting kit. It took me just under an hour to go around, and for £3.00 this was fine. The only criticism I... More

This museum is well worth visiting. There is a very good audio introduction which explains the history of lawnmowers and grass cutters (not the same thing apparently) and tells more about the exhibits. There are several mowers donated by celebrities (Paul O'Grady, Brian May, Eric Morecambe, Prince Charles). The exhibits range from weird contraptions that never caught on to classic... More

Lovely little museum, lots of British heritage. Interesting audio guide. £3 entry which is not unreasonable. Filled an hour and we had a nice coffee across the road at the end.

I stayed with some friends who were poking fun at this museum even though they'd never been. I was intrigued so went along and was not disappointed. It cost £3 to get in, £1 for children, and it was worth every penny. Lots of mowers to see; I never even considered the sheer variety. I also enjoyed seeing the 'famous... More

Despite my not being particularly into Lawnmowers, this is a fascinating way to spend a couple of hours for just 3quid entry with free parking close by and only 10mins walk from Southport town centre (which itself is rather nice too). There are hundreds of exhibits, some clever, some wacky, some donated by famous Rock Stars, Celebrities, even Royalty !... More
