Bishop’s Stortford Museum
Bishop’s Stortford Museum opens the doors to the fascinating history of the town and surrounding area. With our mix of family friendly local history displays, holiday activities and themed walks and talks, we have something to offer the whole family. If you want to explore the history of the town even further why not pick up a Town Trail – they are free and available from the Museum and Tourist Information Centre. You can add a treat to your visit by taking a break in our Maltings Bar, themed to celebrate the town’s industrial heritage, which stocks a range of hot and cold drinks, snacks and Tiptree cakes
ARCHAEOLOGY AT WHITTINGTON WAY
Last year we hosted a display on the recent excavations carried out by Oxford Archaeology East at Whittington Way. Excavations like this are really transforming our understanding of the early development of Bishop’s Stortford and we are delighted that we were the first local venue to host the display. Although the display has now finished we have created a small virtual version of it so you can still stay up to date with this latest development even if you were unable to visit in person.
