A visit to the Gainsborough Heritage Centre really is suitable for everyone – take a nostalgic trip back in time and view the exciting new displays.

Like most charities they rely heavily on the generosity of people, supporting this little gem in the middle of town with visits costing just £3.00 – worth every penny!

Staff have loved seeing parents bringing children to visit; they’ve enjoyed going round with a quiz sheet spotting different items with a little treat at the end of their journey. As always, it’s free for children to enter if accompanied by an adult.

For any tractor enthusiasts who may have visited the Marshall’s Yard recently, the Centre’s shop stocks lots of books and DVDs on Marshalls Tractors – and with a super new scanner they can provide copies of original drawings from the Marshalls factory at a moderate prices.

The cosy tearoom is becoming popular again, selling reasonably priced refreshments: a drink and a slice of delicious homemade cake from just £3.25 makes this a great place to meet up with friends.

The top floor reference room is stocked from floor to ceiling with files containing information and photos of local businesses, schools, buildings and much more. Help and advice is always on hand from dedicated volunteers.

The Centre, situated on the corner of North Street DN21 2HS, is disability-friendly, equipped with toilets and a lift to all floors.
