Bewdley Museum, Bewdley, Worcestershire
If you're out for the day when you're staying in Worcestershire for your large group holiday and you happen to stop in Bewdley for a stroll round, make sure you pop in for a look around Bewdley Museum. It's always good to go and find out a bit about the places you visit and here you can indulge as much or as little as you like. You'll find all kinds of artefacts on display, craft demonstrations, audio histories, hands on activities, and you can even find out what is was like to be in an air raid shelter and the town jails! The collection of paintings, drawings and etchings is very impressive, and if you're the curious sort, the opportunity to learn all about Bewdley is there - the social history, industry, geology, local crafts, and about some of the people who have lived and worked here, including former British Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin, who was born here in 1867.
Out the back of Bewdley Museum, backing onto the town gardens, is The Garden Kitchen, a lovely little cafe that puts the museum courtyard and gardens to very good use, so when you've finished looking around go and find a table and enjoy a leisurely lunch or a big fat slice of cake with a pot of tea.
