The Grove Museum of Victorian Life was developed in the mid 19th century by the Liverpool shipping merchant Duncan Gibb as a summer retreat for himself and his family.Later, the Victorian villa became the family's permanent residence and family home and a visit to the Grove is like stepping back in time.You'll find a series of period rooms, containing mostly original furnishings and fittings, a costume room, and displays of the possessions of three generations.There's also the opportunity to view the outbuildings, which would have served the substantial adjoining farmland, with agricultural equipment including a restored horse-powered threshing mill on display.Step out into the gardens and you'll be able to see the bees making honey or have a game of croquet on the lawn. Sit and relax in the Conservatory or enjoy a picnic in the Grove's gardens. There is also a museum shop on site.

We were disappointed today to find that I was unable to push my husband's wheelchair to the front entrance - instead we were directed to the back through very deep gravel and over a huge cobbled area which was impossible to negotiate! I had explained...More

My girls and I love it here and have been back for the delicious homemade cakes and scones. The house has a great story and the staff tell it so well. Lovely place to spend the afternoon.

We had a lovely afternoon at the Grove museum. Parking was easy to find and upon arrival I had the chance to feed a lively Loaghtan sheep with one of the museum staff! The house is on three floors with plenty to explore and friendly...More

Interesting visit to a house whose inhabitants we had never heard of. The staff brought it to life however when describing the family history. Architecturally it is a bit of a jumble as it was added to over the years but this adds to its...More
