The Hat Works might well be unique, although I imagine there may be something similar in Luton. It provides a glimpse into a piece of the past which is easy to overlook. Everybody wore a hat at one time and this museum lifts the lid, so to speak, on it all. Highly recommended.

The cost of entry is £5 but a multi-site ticket is available that also includes the Air Raid Tunnels, Staircase House and Bramall Hall, this costs just £13 and never expires although you can only visit each attraction once. Our tour guide Ruth was a wealth of knowledge on the subject and a very engaging and interesting speaker. We learned so much about our local heritage and it was a pleasure to be in the company of her and our companions on the tour. There is a great exhibition of hats and other paraphenalia on the middle floor and a nice shop area on the top floor.
