As you go into the Front Hall you will notice that there is a TV and if you choose there is a 15-minute video that you may watch, just ask the staff. We chose not to spend the time, also there are only two chairs, The Hall does, however, have a lovely ceiling, take the time to enjoy it.
I think the Dining Room was our favorite. It is set for a dinner for six and has all the things that a formal dinner would require, a silver nutmeg grinder, Wedgwood dessert custard cups, Sheffield Plate candlesticks, Derby dessert set and ever so much more. We spent quite a while just trying to figure out what everything was. There is a servant present and he is getting things ready for the dinner.
I loved the second floor. It is filled with several rooms of costume. This is far more interesting than your usual costume museum. There is a case of Victorian woman’s Undergarments that is enough to make any modern woman shudder. There are two cases of children’s clothes, one of boys one of girls. In the next room, there is a case of the different dresses that a woman would need on any given day just to go about her day. Morning dress, walking dress, evening dress etc. You will enjoy reading the story of the clothing revolution that was going on as women, in particular, decided that comfort and practicality counted.
The third floor has a servant bedroom and The Frank Bradley Collection of Toy and Model Theatres.
The basement has a kitchen, laundry, and a brewhouse.
Pickford's House is a very entertaining museum to visit and I highly recommend it.
