  • Had fun visiting with my 4 year old niece. As it was the summer holidays they had activities on for children - we made fairy cakes. Staff were really friendly.
  • I was invited up when researching my book Haunted Yorkshire and I have to say it remained one of my favourite locations throughout the entire project. The workhouse is filled with the stench of strategy and sadness and numerous artefacts can almost transport the mind back to life as it would have been. The staff and volunteers are friendly, welcoming and most of all, knowledgeable about the workhouses history. There are even other museums just a short wander away allowing you to truly make a day exploring. Well worth a visit!
