This is a wonderful place to visit if you are in Northampton. You would not believe what is hidden behind the facade of a normal looking terrace house. If you live in this area and have never been, you really are missing a trick.More

What a little treasure. Very helpful staff and well worth having a tour and combining a visit with afternoon tea or lunch in the restaurant. A great shop also with tasteful merchandise rather than the usual gift shop ‘tat’!
