Things to do

The Museum of Cuttlefish

We may not have the fame of city museums and galleries, but we do have the riches. Our local shores, moors, gardens and pathways are littered with artefacts of nature and circumstance. So much so, you can grab your annual dose of culture in a few days away.

Enter a fete with a garden in a tin and you might bag a rosette.
Go to a gig – big names play secret pub sessions if you’re lucky.
Collect and curate your own Natural History Museum.
Record the squawk of a gull on your phone as a ringtone.
Find the perfect cuttlefish.
