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.

During your visit you can also explore the grounds and grand rooms of the beautiful, grade II listed Upton Hall which is home to the Museum. You can also discover more about the long, rich history of the Museum of Timekeeping and its members, who have promoted the study and practice of clock and watchmaking since their foundation in 1858.
