Before elections (purdah)

  • Not living to far from Cannon Hall, it's a place we've visited many times. However until recently, we'd never been in the museum. We took our two grandchildren on a damp, miserable day so we weren't.....  more »
  • We went to Cannon Hall Museum this afternoon for a visit to see Santa. We had been a few years ago to see Santa at Cannon Hall Farm and it wasn’t the best experience and we haven’t been back since...  more »
  • We went to the food festival by chance and it was brilliant. Lots of food stalls of every kind of food , lots of sellers with food and gifts etc different to every day kind of things. We went into the museum part which was interesting. I wanted to go into the farm but it was a bit dear for what I was prepared to pay- £9.95 each. It might be worth it but I didn't chance the cost to find out , although it is cheaper after 3.30. The farm shop was brilliant! A large shop, well laid out with loads to choose from.
  • Went on a push bike ride to here with my husband on a lovely sunny day. It's a wonderful place to visit. It offers beautiful scenery, Cafe, farm shop, the museum and the farm. It also has clean free public toilets. I don't think I noticed any pushbike parking, so we just walked round with our bikes and sat on the steps of the house and enjoyed the sunshine and the scenery.
