What travellers are saying
- Wonderful vibrant building. We visited when a summer fete was on and they had really gone to town. The stalls were all through the building, grounds and of such a varied selection there was something for everyone. Music was laid on too.
There is a real sense that this is the beating heart of an adhesive community. It was great to witness what can be done when people pull together.
The building is architecturally magnificent and well worth a visit in its own right.
A trip to Wymondham wouldn't be complete without it.Written 17 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Well where do I start? We happened upon information regarding this museum being the 1st purpose built prison with individual cells built in 1785 to replace the original house of correction c1619, so couldn’t resist visiting.
99% of the museum is on the ground floor but there is a stone staircase down to the basement where there is a re-created dungeon, as the house of correction did have a dungeon.
We are not the most agile so rang ahead to check where the nearest parking was and were lucky to be told that they did have I space in their car park for disabled parking and it was actually free and we were offered the use it. Other than that there is a car park within normal walking distance or side roads with double yellow lines.
In reception where the counter is part of the original magistrates bench; you can pick up an information guide which takes you through each room with a description of what it contains. Information re the local brush factory, Ketts rebellion of 1549 in the corridor which was also the main route for the magistrates to the courtroom. There is a display showing the old cinema and the films that were shown.
There is an example of 1 of the 3 police cells that were here when the building was used as the local police station with an audio guide.
The tearoom was the exercise yard and has a well in one corner.
The staff are very friendly and we were lucky to meet JB who having volunteered here for 10 years + is a mine of information.
Well worth the entrance fee and not to be missed.Written 8 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We were told that dead rats were hung here years ago. My wife had ancestors who lived in the next street.Written 19 March 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We phoned to enquire to visit the hall - this place is not open to the public - only for private event.Written 13 October 2022
- The team running this art's center have thought about how to support the local community. Exhibitions change frequently and often include workshops. When workshops are not running, a children's drawing area is available. I went to see The Textile Show and it it was very nicely arrangedWritten 7 September 2019
- We recently moved to the area and lots of people told us to try this place. I don’t know what I expect but compared to most soft plays in the area, this one is awful. I took my 3 year old to meet his friends and I also have a three month old. I had her in her carrier and when I paid the lady said I had to pay for the baby too. When I told her she can’t even roll over I was told if she goes in to the soft play, even strapped to me, I had to pay for her. Which is just ridiculous as no other soft play I’ve been to have ever charged a non moving baby. I couldn’t leave my 3 year old to go in alone so I had to pay for the baby.
Further to that, the whole place is dirty, the soft play especially, the toys in the little area were so grotty.. the toilets didn’t look like they had been cleaned all day (we arrived at around 1pm). The disabled/changing table toilet wasn’t working so people were just changing nappies wherever they could, so unsanitary.
The saving grace for our visit was the outside area. That was fun and the kids really enjoyed that area. We won’t be back and our friends all agreed. Such a shame as it could be great.Written 7 November 2023
- Wonderfully evocative of the hey day of British Rail. The pedestrian bridge to cross the line to the opposite platform is an architectural gemWritten 11 October 2019
- Lovely farmhouse tearoom.
Gorgeous garden area, with individual little cute ‘sheds’.
Lovely cakes, what is not to like!Written 10 September 2023
- It's always good to see independent shops thriving and I hope I'm correct in saying that this appears to be one of them. Good quality merchandise for the home and a wide selection of unusual gifts on two floors.
Friendly lady running things, don't appear to have a website but would do well online I'm sure.Written 20 February 2020
- Fantastic place to visit for gifts and clothing! The staff are very helpful and friendly… spent over 30 minutes in the shop it was so nice.. DaveWritten 14 April 2023
- WOW.... what a day, if you're a motor racing fan, this is NOT to be missed. A huge collection of historically important Lotus cars, all of which are nicely accessible for photos. THREE HOURS that went in a flash, Richard our host is a Lotus man to the core, we took the Jaguar jibes fair and square on the chin, great fun. Soak up the names of the past, who have sadly left us, some in tragic circumstances, take a tissue if you have any soul at all, my heros all spoken of with huge passion and feeling. Thank You Classic Team LotusWritten 10 October 2023
- Introduction to Sports Cars - a brilliant, brilliant day. The morning spent with Nick at Classic Team Lotus, then a tour of the factory seeing the Emiras being built. Nick’s knowledge and delivery style made for a fantastic and insightful morning. After an excellent lunch, the afternoon was spent with Dave learning to drive the Emira around the full test track. Amazing cars and tuition. Martin Donnelly was brilliant too. The whole day expertly run by Sheena. Everyone involved made special effort to ensure my sixteen year old son had an “insane day”, so thank you so much for that. I’d encourage anyone to do this, or any other of the experiences available; you won’t be disappointed.Written 31 August 2023
- You have to love the Robert Kett - its a bit rough round the edges but the food is great, the service friendly and the prices amazing - well worth a visitWritten 4 January 2018
