“Alnwick visit”
Reviewed July 1, 2015

The museum is interesting but small. Impossible to visit the shop without purchasing a bargain. Friendly staff .

“Hardy's as good as ever”
Reviewed April 11, 2015

Having lived in the area 30 years ago, and made full use of Hardy's at that time, it was good to revisit. The free museum was a little tired on the outside but inside was as good as ever. Lots to interest even the most casual countryman, all nicely displayed and well explained. The shop inside held a wealth of fishing and sporting tackle, most of it bearing the Hardy's logo, so was of high quality. Altogether a very enjoyable 45 minutes spent wandering around.

“A bit niche”
Reviewed September 15, 2014

As fans of small and specific museums, we were drawn here by the brown sign. Neither of us knew anything about fishing before our visit. The majority of the building is the shop, with the lobby area given over to a history of the company on display boards, and a side room with glass cabinets full of fishing tackle. I'm not sure I'm much more knowledgeable about fishing than before (just not my thing), but the displays were well presented and there was ample information for each section.
