Not sure to what expect but highly recommend a visit. You must pay for the tour £7 as this is where the interest is. The workrooms are just like they were left and the guide was very interesting. Don't know why there are poor reviews....More

Really interesting tour. Our guide William was very engaging. I'd thoroughly recommend it. The tour lasts about an hour, and there are some extra bits to look at, so I'd allow 1.5-2 hours total.
