What better time than 2024 to visit Englesea Brook as our theme for this year is Childhood?

We have exhibits that will take you back to childhood of the 1800s and early 1900s, and six different activity bags that relate to our topics that you can borrow free of charge. The activities include objects to handle, games to play, sounds to hear, things to do and a trail to follow.

We have a new dedicated children’s corner where you can rest a while, read a book, do some colouring or craft, or dress up and play.

Our outdoor space is great to explore. You can enjoy the idyllic countryside and if you’re lucky you may even get to say hello to our alpaca neighbours!

If you get peckish, you can pop into our Tea Room for teacakes, crumpets and home-made cake.

Englesea Brook is a playful museum that welcomes visitors of all ages and our aim is for your visit to be as enjoyable as possible. If you have any particular requirements, please let us know. If you need ear-defenders, a place to chill, or something to keep busy hands occupied, we can provide these for you.

We have high chairs, bottle-warming facilities, and spaces to change your baby, and we are also breastfeeding-friendly.
