Come and visit the Museum of Timekeeping on their open day each Friday to explore amazing exhibits including the watch worn by Captain Scott on his ill-fated polar expedition of 1912. You can also discover more about early timekeeping devices including turret and lantern clocks, and hear the voice of the General Post Office’s first Speaking Clock via the original machine itself.
