Group Visit Information

Museum of Timekeeping

Group visits are a brilliant way to view our award winning Museum of Timekeeping which houses the most comprehensive collection of clocks, watches, and other timepieces outside London.

What to expect:

Private Tours typically last around two hours and feature an introduction about the history of the British Horological Institute, the museum and collection, followed by a guided tour of a selection of artefacts and displays from our ground floor museum galleries and the stories behind them, with time for questions at the end.

You will hear the original speaking clock, see the watch taken to the Antarctic by Captain Scott and be enthralled by the story of John Harrison, saviour of thousands of lives by his invention of the chronometer.

Group size:

A group size of around 15-24 people is ideal.  For groups of over 24 we just ask that you let us know in advance so that we can make arrangements for an additional guide.


Admission is charged at £10 per person, with a minimum charge of £100 applying during normal office hours i.e. Mon-Fri 9am-5pm although we can arrange visits at other times.
