  • I was not sure about this museum as I do not really have an interest in horology, I went along because it was different and I happened to be passing. From the second I walked in I was hooked. The next...  more »
  • A hidden gem of a place with a fab restaurant too! So very interesting and the fact that is not open all the time makes it an interesting find when it is. Super restaurant and food. Lovely setting wit...  more »

  • Today I visited Horological institute at Upton this is the first year they have opened the Museum on a Friday. I thought I would enjoy this day out and I was not dissapointed. This beautiful clock and watch engineering was well worth the visit with plenty to see. Upton Hall is the home of The British Horological Institute. this is a beautiful building too. I will be returning very soon as there is plenty to see. They do guided tours for groups that last for around 2 hours their guides are very knowledgeable thank you for a lovely day.
  • Amazing find! Brilliant volunteer guides - thought we'd be there 20 minutes and stayed for 3 hours.
  • Wonderful place to visit. Amazing exhibits and lovely people there who are more than happy to inform visitors about the history of the pieces on show. Really recommend visiting, its got lots to see and learn about, without being too big that you get bored.
  • If you are interested in horology then this is a must visit. Do check before you go as opening times vary and it is not open every day.
  • Fabulous place, amazing clocks and information available
