Cultural gem Kirkleatham Museum combines wildlife, Anglo-Saxon finds and local heritage with stunning grounds to unwind in.
Kirkleatham Museum houses an enthralling range of artefacts and exhibitions covering local and social history, maritime and industrial heritage set in 70 acres of spectacular grounds, just outside the seaside town of Redcar, on England’s northeast coast.
Visit the renowned Saxon Princess exhibition, a showcase of some of the rarest Anglo-Saxon finds from Northern England. Archaeological excavations of the local area show how people lived 5,000 years ago, with a Neolithic cairn, Bronze Age burial sites, the remains of a timber house and two timber circles to explore. Learn about the archaeological dig through photographs, films and a fascinating array of ancient objects.
Also on site is the wonderful Kirkleatham Owl Centre, home to the UK’s largest collection of owls and a wide variety of birds, bugs and creatures from around the world.
Redcar is 3 hours 10 minutes from London by train.
