A fantastic look at a 1930/1950 photographic studio with all original fittings. You have several guides taking you through parts of this fantastic house. Make sure you book ahead however.

What an interesting experience! Just like stepping back in time. We are not camera buffs but we thoroughly enjoyed the visit as the guides were excellent. Well worth a visit

I must admit I wasn't all that keen when my other half suggested a tour of the Hardmans' house, but I really enjoyed my visit. An hour and a half passed so quickly! You can feel as if you are made to "jump through hoops"...More

We had no problem booking at all. Rang about a week before we visited. Perhaps send an email to them. Hope you get it sorted. Pete

We did not have any problems when we booked, maybe they are having technical difficulties. I would leave a message and then turn up and book your tour time. They are all so helpful.
