Cafe, picnics and shop

Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse has a shop, café, picnic areas, baby changing facilities, accessible toilets and parking. 

The Mardlers’ Rest Café

The Mardlers' Rest Café in the museum courtyard offers a selection of teas, coffees, cakes, sandwiches and light meals in a friendly environment. If you live close by or are just passing, remember you can drop into the Mardlers' Rest Café for lunch, coffee or a snack without having to pay museum admission.


Gressenhall is perfect for picnics. There are picnic tables and benches around the workhouse buildings and in the adventure playground. There is also an indoor picnic area for when the weather is less than perfect. 

Please note that our adventure playground is currently closed until further notice.
