Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Richard Jefferies Museum (2021)

The museum consists of a 17th century thatched cottage bought by the Jefferies family in 1800, a later, 19th century three-storied farmhouse, plus outbuildings, gardens, a copse, orchard and vegetable gardens. Inside, there is an extensive collection of items relating to Jefferies, mostly on loan, such as first editions of many of Richard Jefferies' writings, photographs, paintings and memorabilia. Many of the exhibits give fascinating insights into bygone times.
