Did you know we also now offer outreach talks to community groups, schools and businesses, in the comfort of your own venue?!

We’ve also been working hard to improve our access resources, for those who find it more difficult to visit sites like ours. So, on our website, you’ll now find an Access Statement, Visual Story and Sensory Map, so you can plan ahead when coming to visit us. It’s just one more way we’re trying to make Royston’s heritage more accessible to all.
