Personalised Group Tours are a wonderful opportunity to experience the largest working collection of clocks, watches and other timepieces outside London which has been accumulated over 160 years.
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 Scots watch and 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 also 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 email@example.com
