Pick up a treat or two

You'll find a small shop below stairs with a selection of our most popular cards, gifts and bespoke items linking to the current exhibition. Every penny you spend supports the conservation charity and helps us to care for special places like Treasurer's House. Ask the team for directions to the city centre shop if you're looking for more choice.
