Tucked behind the museum is a beautiful tranquil garden- now lovingly restored to reflect the site's fascinating 450 year history, and perfect for a sunny day. The garden includes a raised bed for a World War Two victory garden, four wooden planters for medicinal herbs reflecting different eras of the building's life, a wildlife garden and seating.
The museum garden is open to the public every Saturday from April to September and access is by the gate in Trinity Street which runs along the side of the museum.
