We were a party of 45 folk from Essex. The Staff who dealt with the booking were friendly and most helpful, and on the day of our visit, were equally so. Our arrival was dealt with promptly, though we did create a slight delay to other visitors, whilst they had to wait for 45 tickets to be printed...it really was not much of a problem.
There was so much to see in all the museum rooms and cabinets, especially some superb silver and silver gilt items. There was also an art exhibition on show, which added to the wonderful collection of paintings and sketches held.
Other things of interest were videos of historic horses, races and incidents to view.
A room which caused much hilarity, was one where those, who wished, could don fancy hats for the ladies and toppers for the men, and have photos taken with a model race horse. Here too, brave souls could wear silks and ride a simulated horse in a race....not for the fainthearted.
After all this excitement, there was a welcoming tearoom, which served a variety of refreshments, including a range of wonderful homemade scones and cakes, plus a well-stocked shop.
The museum obviously welcomes children, as there was much evidence of their activities and art work.
Much enjoyment can be gained from visiting this interesting place, even if you don't have a strong love of horses and racing - well worth the visit!!
