One Thing To Do In Derby On a Rainy Day

If you're in Derby and it is raining which lets be honest about the weather lately is likely to happen. I live just outside Derby and I pop in when I need to and the other day I needed to pick something up from town . In Derby we've a number of museums and one of these is Pickford's House Museum of Georgian Life and Costume is in Derby, England. It is named after architect Joseph Pickford, who built it as his family home in 1770. It was opened as a museum in 1988. The building is Grade I listed. 

The museum is free which is a bonus in these economic times , the museum has an immeadiate afffect as soon as you work up to it and I love the Georgian era. I am never happier than when I am visiting a museum I have been enthralled with museums since childhood, I spent hours in them as a child . And I still spend hours in them it is somewhere I truly feel myself and I feel I truly belong, and it helps that the Derby museum house are ever so friendly and knowledgeable , as soon as you set foot in the museum they talk to you .


You can even use a 1930's bathroom , there is also an Edwardian bathroom you can use as well.


There is even a quaint Georgian garden which is really most exquisite for saying how close you are to the city centre it really is a little green oasis.

I just love this little undercroft underneath the house with the door leading inside it is what I love to think of as a secret door.
