The museum and castle gardens will be closed tomorrow  (Thurs) and Friday. We hope to reopen on Saturday if weather conditions permit.

Peacock Tea Room

Located within the museum building, the Peacock Tea Room is open throughout the year. Serving a range of speciality coffees and other hot drinks, the tea room provides a warm and welcoming environment for refreshment. As well as a delicious range of cakes, pastries and desserts, we also offer a good selection of paninis, sandwiches and wraps. Quiche, lasagne and soup are also available (plus pies and beef stew during the winter). If you’re out walking the gardens during the winter, why not call in and warm up with a hot drink by our wood burning stove.
