Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: The House of Hardy Museum displays ta variety of fishing tackle and associated products which were manufactured by Hardy's from the very beginning of the business in 1872 right up to the present day current products being manufactured today. The museum is not just a celebration of all things relating to Hardy's but of British manufacturing at its very best. The "Perfect" display cabinet is testament to a British design from the late 1800's which is still in production today!

This is a nice and informative Museum attached to a very good fishing tackle shop.
There are videos playing of Hardy employees making fly rods, the staff are friendly and very helpful,
Take your wallet as there is everything for the fisherman.

If you are a keen fisherman/angler then this place is for you. Interesting display in museum about history of the Hardy family and fishing equipment. Well stocked store of different brands of fishing equipment & accessories. Friendly staff who were happy to chat about 'fishing'. They obviously KNOW what they are talking about and were very pleasant and helpful. Shop's a bit pricey but you are getting top quality products.
