Have a unique experience and visit this wonderful 18th century Georgian town house that was once the home to the famous architect, Joseph Pickford.

As you stroll through this three-bedroomed house, take in the beauty of the dressing room and family bedroom which are furnished and decorated as they would have been in 1815. Then afterwards, witness how servants lived and worked by visiting the servant’s bedroom, kitchen, scullery and laundry.

You’ll also get the chance to feast your eyes on original 18th century paintings, which include the works of the famous painter, Joseph Wright of Derby. And if that’s not enough, go to the ground floor and see the wonderful displays of Georgian and Victorian costumes and textiles.

There is so much to see here and a visit to the museum is free of charge. You can’t get better than that!
