“A HISTORIC MUSEUM”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

I grew up in Barton-upon-Humber and well remember the ropery. Part of the rope walk is now a museum with free entry. I learned a lot and was pleased to see photos of people whom I remembered in childhood days.

“Worth a visit.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We had never heard of this place but when visiting Tesco in the town we spotted it across the way. ( Within spitting distance of Humber Bridge ) As far as I know rope was made here and the building is understandably very long. As you walk through it you can see tools/implements that must have been used in the manufacturing process.
There is a great coffee shop with food served and some comfy seating. Apparently there is an interesting garden here as well but on the day of our visit it was cold and wet so enjoyed the cafe instead. We did not see that much of the place itself but will be going again. There are art and craft studios/exhibitions/items for sale etc. Looks like there might be music events held here also if you go the their website. Well worth a look....:-)

“Informative and Wide-Ranging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

So many things to see at The Ropewalk - the museum and a wide range of Arts and Crafts artists then a little walk too. Very good hour or so spent passing the time away whilst broadening your horizons.

“Rubbish!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Went yesterday for 6 icecreams at 3.50pm as they are open until 4pm. We was told they had stopped serving. We said we only wanted 6 icecreams to take away. Was then told they had cashed up! Should say close 3.50pm not 4pm! Don,t people want buisness nowadays!
Rubbish!
