Ever wondered where Charlie and the Chocolate Factory started or what a Bogtrotter cake might taste like? Then pay a visit to the Roald Dahl Museum.
Aimed at 6-12 year olds (but with plenty for adults too) this museum, in Great Missenden, is dedicated to the life and works of one of our favourite children’s author, Roald Dahl.
Featuring two fun and fact-packed biographical galleries where you can rummage through his photo albums, smell the giant chocolate doors and poke around Dahl’s Writing Hut. There’s also the Story Centre where visitors are encouraged to dress up, make up stories and generally let their imagination run wild.
Follow up the visit with a trip to Café Twit where Oompa Loompa lunch bags, SandWitches and Whizzpoppers are a lunchtime staple. Whilst in the area, why not take a wander around the village and beyond, using the Museum’s free Village and Countryside Trail guides which point out the places that inspired Roald Dahl and feature in the stories.
