  • Interesting visit for anyone interested in clocks, watches and timekeeping. I spent about 1.5 hours here but this included the speaking clock presentation. Staff very helpful. Decent wheelchair access & parking. No lift to 1st floor but ground floor contains quite a lot of exhibits. Tearoom fantastic but you wouldn't say it was cheap.
  • I was taken here as a surprise. Very friendly guides, lovely welcoming and a great talk about "The Talking Clock". A variety of time pieces from over the years. The only thing I would have liked more is if every clock had more information to it, some didn't have any info. Still, I would highly recommend and the cafe is fantastic!!!!!
  • Covers the history of timekeeping. Lots of interesting exhibits. Volunteer guides very enthusiastic. Free entry and free carpark. Very nice teashop.
  • Lovely evening listening to some classical music. Bought picnic and beverage and relaxed in the sunshine.
  • About clocks, watches and any other time pieces including TIM -- the talking clock -- 3 generations actually. Find out gems like the first talking clock woman had to have her teeth filed to stop her from whistling on the recording. Also the expected cafĂ«.
