“My Grandson loves it here..”
Review of Bourne Hall

Bourne Hall
Reviewed 1 December 2013

My Grandson who is four years old loves Bourne Hall. He feeds the ducks of which there are many, which often follow him across the grass.
The café serves children's lunch boxes which are very good value for money, sandwiches, a piece of fruit, a yogurt, a packet of crisps, and a drink. He likes to sit in the big leather chairs and look at the art exhibitions on the surrounding walls.
The museum is also of great interest to him, along with wandering the corridors and looking to see if any of the classes are taking place. We have watched Zumba classes, art classes, Tai Chi and even blood donations.
The library has a great children's section and you can sit and read books as long as you wish.
Lovely place. !!!

Bourne hall is a lovely place to take the children to feed the ducks, it is also near to the village, so if you want to have lunch there, the Spring public house is lovely for lunch or dinner.

It is more than just a visit to the library at Bourne Hall as you can walk in the surrounding lovely garden with lake ,have a coffee visit the museum and often visit free art exhibitions and craft fairs .
On top of this the library is good and staff very helpful what a great facility.

I've been & have also taken part in exhibitions here over the years. There is usually some thing of interest going on. The main exhibition space (for art shows) is light & bright & very pleasant. The cafe is small but a coffee or tea & a snack can be got most of the time with plenty of seating. Other rooms or spaces are equally bright. It is a pity all the spaces are not always in full use because Bourne Hall is a nice building. Parking can be a problem a bit expensive & it is difficult to see traffic coming round from the left on the one way system as you leave the car park to join the road system. Strongly advise people to check out what is going on here if in the area. Lots of history weekends or evenings & events & many other topics of interest including the museum. All a very high standard.
The grounds with the pond & ducks etc should not be missed. Very attractive.

Bourne Hall is an excellent community resource. It has a library which runs activities for kids and has free WiFi, a lovely little park with a duck pond, ample parking, events throughout the day in the many rooms (can be rented for parties) and a small museum. Ok the museum is not exactly the British Museum, but it is interesting, quaint, well kept and will keep you amused for half an hour. Its free.

The cafe has a nice area to sit with comfy seats where you can chat about the odd artwork on display (who buys that stuff?). It's all that you need really, however, it would be nice if it opened earlier. I am so glad that Bourne Hall exists, it provides a community hub, my family and I would be lost without it. Keep up the good work.
