“Very worthwhile to visit”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I understand that opening of this property for tours is limited so we were very lucky that they accepted a group of 80 of us from Bexley Civic Society on a Sunday mornig. Fantastic visit with fantastic curator and guides. We even got to see the original 'speaking clock' and hear it also on view was Scott of the Antartic's watch. Also, the house has a fascinating history.
