Gladstone Court Museum began as a private venture in 1964, and opened its doors to the public in 1968. The ceremony was carried out by the poet Hugh McDiarmid. Here you can visit 'real' Victorian streets and visit the various small shops and business premises. Places to visit include a schoolroom, library, printer, the cobbler, the banker and many more in this amazingly reconstructed slice of Victorian life.
