As we prepare for the opening of our exciting new café (part of our new visitor centre named the Gateway Project) we are operating an interim kiosk, situated behind the Market Square.

From the kiosk you can enjoy a range of hot and cold snacks and drinks, plus delicious cakes and more. Please note that the café closes 30 minutes before the Museum closes. View the food menu and drinks menu.

Indoor seating is provided in the nearby Medieval house from North Cray (and occasionally the Building Crafts Gallery).

For visitors wishing to picnic, you will find plenty of benches and picnic tables around the mill pond and in many quiet spots around our 40-acre site.

Our new café will open in spring 2017.
