Reflect on your visit at The Workhouse

Volunteers weeding The Workhouse garden

Contemplate your visit within our gardens and outdoor space.

In fine weather you can enjoy the recreated Victorian vegetable garden where you are welcome to picnic. The garden, which is maintained by volunteers, is planted with heritage varieties and seasonal produce. Every Saturday in August ‘Pauper Pickings’ are held where you can pick vegetables with the paupers in the garden.

Alternatively, you can visit the cafe for a variety of produce including our quintessential British cream tea. Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us continue looking after The Workhouse for ever, for everyone.
