COVID-19 UPDATE: Whittlesey Museum reopens on Saturday 5th June. To begin with, we will only be opening on Saturday mornings between 10am and 1pm. We hope to expand our opening times later in the year.
Please wear a mask during your visit the museum whilst in the indoor areas.
Whittlesey Museum is an independent museum, we rely on entry fees and donations to stay open.
A wheelchair ramp can be provided for entry into the building. All museum displays are on the ground floor, however due to the historic nature of the building some doorways are not accessible to wheelchairs – alternative routes around the museum are available.
An accessible toilet is available, however there are no baby change facilities at the museum.
There are no refreshment facilities at the museum, however Whittlesey Museum is situated very close to several cafes, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants.
The Museum is closed during Christmas week.
Reaching the Museum by Public Transport
Whittlesey Museum is a short walk from Whittlesea railway station and is situated in the town centre, served by several bus routes.
Reaching the Museum by Road

Take Exit 17 of the A1(M) to join the A1139 Fletton Parkway, heading East. At junction 3A, take the A605 exit to Whittlesey. Stay on the A605 through four roundabouts, following signs to Whittlesey, until you reach the town. At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto the B1040 and follow it to the left past Whittlesey Community Hub to Market Street and the Museum. Note that if you continue past the Museum and make a left turn in the marketplace onto Queens Street, there is a free carpark.

Take the A605 from March, through Eastrea and Coates and into Whittlesey. At the roundabout, turn left on the B1093 Eastgate. Continue to follow Eastgate across the town marketplace to Market Street and the Museum. Note that if you turn right when you are in the marketplace rather than going straight onto Market Street, there is a free carpark in Queens Street.
Whittlesey Museum has no dedicated car parking, however there are free car parks in Whittlesey town centre very close to the museum as well as free on-street parking in roads nearby. The road immediately outside the museum (Market Street) has free short-stay parking bays. The Black Bull pub next door to the museum has a car park for the use of their customers only.
