Welcome tour at The Workhouse

Volunteer giving a welcome tour with visitors outside The Workhouse

Begin your day with a volunteer-led welcome tour

Why not start your visit by joining a volunteer-led welcome tour at 11am (numbers limited, non-bookable). This guided tour explores some of the outside areas not usually seen by the public and recalls the history of the surrounding buildings.

Pauper Yarn Family Tours run every Friday in August - join an inmate at 11am as they take you for a behind the scenes tour before the site opens at 12noon.

When the house opens at 12noon, come and learn about those who lived and worked here, chat to a room guide and visit our café for a snack.
