The Tours start from 10 in the morning and don't run at set times, so if you turn up at 1130, they may start the tour off with you or get you to wait ten minutes, until the last tour begins at 330pm. The tours run for 1 1/2 hours- so the last tour would finish at 5pm for instance. On Saturdays the Museum opens from 1pm. Theres free car parking at the bottom of the hill. The museums number is 01287642877 and the volunteers are lovely. Claire
