Georgian house with varied well presented room settings. No entrance charge - donations welcome. Short walk from Art Gallery and Museum - worth combining the two. Holds small specialist exhibitions so worth checking the web. Not easy for the disabled.

Tucked away in a street a little piece of history. Fascinating and really well presented. There is currently a collection of Vivian Westwood shoes but well worth the visit even without the shoes. The garden's are so peaceful
