Elizabeth Gaskell is one of my favourite novelists so it was wonderful to be able to visit the place where she lived and wrote so many of her novels. How Victorian (and earlier) women novelists managed to wrote while looking after a family has always been something I've marvelled at and this house really brings that home. The staff were knowledgeable and really added to the tour, piano playing, telling anecdotes, they brought the house and its occupants to life. The tea room was good too.

This is the 2nd time a friend & I have booked in here for Afternoon tea with procecco. Old fashioned elegance is the effect of the room with lovely comfortable easy chairs. The staff are friendly & efficient. The food served as you would expect for traditional afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones with jam & cream & small cakes & tea of your choice. The only down side (which is probably a cost cutting exercise) was that on out 1st visit last year we were each served with half a bottle.

This museum is in an old Synagogue, small but definitely worth a visit, especially if you check that there will be a volunteer there on the day to do one or both of the Tours . We turned up at 2.30 on a rainy cold afternoon, and Diane, that day's volunteer, did the tour about faith and the actual synagogue with us, then tacked on part of the other tour which is an exhibition in the gallery about the social history of the people who attended. She was really interesting and knowledgable.
