Group tours are available all year
Tours typically last two hours and feature an introduction to the history of the British Horological Institute (BHI), the Museum of Timekeeping and the history of Upton Hall.
We then take you on a guided tour of the museum galleries on the ground floor, telling you some of the stories behind the artefacts like the original Speaking Clock featuring the ‘Girl with the Golden Voice’, Ethel Cain, who beat 9,000 applicants to become the voice of the first Speaking Clock. Other gems include William Hayward’s Japanned Longcase clock, the hands from the 150-year-old St. Pancras Station Clock, Captain Scott’s watch and the Gillett & Johnston Turret Clock Movement.
There will be time for questions at the end and an opportunity to look around the remaining galleries. We can tailor the content to meet the needs and interests of your group.
£12 per person, for tour only with a minimum charge of £120 per group.
£15 per person for tour, hot drinks and biscuits.
Free coach / car parking
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. For a Group Tour booking form, please click here
