Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the museum will be unable to offer group visits until further notice. The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is paramount and until we feel we can guarantee their safety, the museum will remain closed.
Tours typically last around two hours and feature an introduction to the history of the British Horological Institute, the museum and the 200 year old Upton Hall.
We then take you on a guided tour of some of the artefacts and displays from our ground floor museum galleries, telling you the stories behind them. The original speaking clock features the voice of Ethel Cain who beat 9,000 applicants to become the Girl with the Golden Voice. Other gems include Captain Scott’s watch and the hands from the 150 year old St. Pancras Station Clock.
There will be time for questions at the end, and the opportunity to look round the remaining galleries. We can tailor the content to meet the needs and interests of your group.
A group size of 15-50 people is ideal but we can accommodate larger groups by arrangement. To provide exclusivity, tours are booked outside of general opening hours and they can be arranged during any time of year. To check for available dates, please call us on 01636 817601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
£10 per person, with a minimum charge of £100 per group.

The museum is closed until further notice due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
