Visiting Upton Hall
Groups visiting Upton Hall are frequently amazed at the size and diversity of the collection held by The British Horological Institute.
Visits commence with an outline of how the Institute came into being and its role in today's society.
The tour of the collection includes:
- Timepieces made from the 17th century right up to the present day, with examples of many and varied methods used in the continuing quest for complete accuracy in timekeeping;
- Personal timekeeping represented by pocket and wrist watches;
- Public clocks including two Post Office Speaking Clocks, turret (church) clocks and industrial electrical horology;
- Domestic clocks including mantel, wall and longcase.
There is also an opportunity to hear some of the history of Upton Hall and its previous occupants.
Prices, together with contact details for queries, or to check availability of dates, can be found on the group visit booking page.
