Loved this antique centre, like taking a walk back throughout history. Felt extremely nostalgic walking through the rooms that were set up in decades - loved the 60's, 70's and 80's rooms, recognized lots of items from my childhood. More like a museum - wonderful.

Recently extended, stock changes regularly and the Date and Walnut scones in the cafe are to die for and very reasonably priced.
