Mr Straw's House Worksop Walk

Join our monthly led walk and follow in the footsteps of the Straw family. Discover fascinating facts about the town the Straws called home and the surrounding area.

  • Booking essential

Mr Straw’s House in Worksop is a preserved 1920s period home of a grocer's family, virtually unchanged since the Straws moved there in 1923. The house is open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays.

The Worksop Walks starts from Mr Straw's House at 5 Blyth Grove. Our team of knowledgeable volunteers will lead visitors on a walk through the town, revealing snippets of history and its relationship with the Straw family.

You'll discover all about this once prosperous town as you retrace the footsteps of the family, from their home to their place of work, and their final resting place.

The walk takes around 3 hours and includes a comfort and refreshment break at the Aurora Centre.

If you wish to tour the house at the end of your walk, please remember to book this in advance, through the Mr Straw's House website, as we can't guarantee there will be slots available.
