Mr Badger's Cafe

Directly opposite the main doors of the museum is Mr Badger's Cafe. Named after that wonderful character from 'The Wind in the Willows', a series of scale models in the cafe illustrate scenes from the book. The cafe operates the same days and hours as the museum, but groups outside these hours can be catered for by prior arrangement.
