Frequently asked questions

Pendon has a small car park that is sufficient at most times. If you do find that you need to park on the public road please do so with consideration to our neighbours and the village.

We are pleased to make special arrangements for visits by any association, club, educational or youth group. Details can be found under group visits.

If you or a member of your party has a disablity or is mobility-impaired please inform us before your visit and we will do our best to assist. This applies to both visitors on public admission days and to those participating in our events and activities. You will find more information here.


We impose as few restrictions on visitors as we can.
However, please note that:
- pushchairs cannot be accommodated because of restricted space
- dogs are not allowed in the museum
- flash photography is not allowed
- those wishing to take photographs for commercial use must clear this with us in advance.
