  • A fabulous few hours for anyone with an interest in ceramics, with some amazing delft in particular, but a good mixture overall. The tea room has delicious home made cakes and the staff are friendly and polite. There was a historical photograph exhibition set up in a large gallery on the day of my last visit, I imagine one of many temporary exhibits and exhibitions! Well worth a visit, in my opinion..
