Have you seen the Godalming Museum Newsletter?

The museum gardens were conceived as a cottage garden in the Surrey style created by Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens, using her ideas of planting and his of design.

On a fine day, a very agreeable place to enjoy a cafetiere of freshly-brewed coffee!  

Enter by the garden door to see the temporary exhibition area and the Gift Shop. 

Great care has been taken to ensure the interior development has been sympathetic to the original features of the building.

The touch-screen Gertrude Jekyll's Scrapbook is an enjoyable way to explore the famous gardener's life, work and design techniques

The local history galleries are on the first floor. Ceiling hung banners guide you around the displays which cover local interest topics ranging from archaeology to war time, work and play to the Silver Jubilee.

Also on the first floor, the Wall of Faces - featuring people who made Godalming into what it is today, and local celebrities...

... and the workings of the old town clock, removed from the Pepperpot, but still keeping perfect time
