We visited the County Museum and Roald Dahl gallery next door, and they were both excellent. There were a number of very interesting displays, with many of them being interactive. The lego exhibition at the Museum was very good and kept the children very occupied.

First visit - shameful to admit, was tempted by the Frink exhibition which was very interesting. Quirky rooms, interesting, lovely little shop and café with a delightful garden.

We always use upper hundreds car park which is a pound an hour or 1.50 on Sunday's and bank holidays. HP20 1RS. This is only a short walk from gallery but you will have to walk through town.
