Cafe and shop
Our Museum shop is a great place to find unusual presents and cards that you won’t find on the High Street. It stocks a wide range of gifts and souvenirs, specialising in old-fashioned toys, gemstones, books about Christchurch and the surrounding area and good quality craft items, sourced from local makers.
Every purchase supports the work of the museum.
Visitors to the Museum can also enjoy hot and cold drinks and light refreshments in our cosy coffee area or, in good weather, outside in the sunny courtyard and beautiful walled Herb Garden.
Why not browse our popular ‘Pre loved book’ shelf and buy something to read whilst you relax in lovely surroundings. Sit back and enjoy a variety of ‘Bean to Cup’ speciality coffee or tea with a slice of handmade cake.
