  • Visited the workhouse and found a lovely selection of local craft. Highlights for me were handmade soap, felted pictures and beautiful wicker baskets all reasonably priced.  more »
  • I would not recommend taking children/teens here. Quite boring for them and they lost attention quite quickly. Not a bad place if looking to learn some history about workhouses and your history.  more »
  • We have been through the presentation before and loed Wee Hannah - wonderful historical account - this time we stopped for coffee and the place is great. Good atmosphere and a great scone - thank you  more »

  • Includes a cafe, a souvenir shop and an educational exhibition. There´s an audio guide available for the exhibition in different languages. The staff is very friendly. Great, cosy atmosphere. Free Wifi provided in the cafe with a computer and printer for visitor use in the centre hall. Not as crowded as other cafes at the Square. Definitively worth stopping by!
  • Small exhibition that is good as far as it goes. I thought that they could have presented more on the actual conditions in the workhouse.
  • It's good lesson for history.....but they need to have some real things....
  • Not as interesting as hoped for. Still, given the short walk from the village, worth a visit. A playground in onsite too, which was popular with the kids.
  • Very interesting tour of the old workhouse and nice little gift shop.
