Watch and clock museum, gift shop and repair specialist. The museum is based around the local children's stories of Mr George the clock man written by Diana Bell. The stories are based on a real character, George Ellis, Diana's father; a watch and clock repairer who lived and worked in Northumberland last century. The museum brings together the stories along with Diana's large collection of watches, clocks, tools and parts into one attraction suitable for all ages which is both educational and fun. Children's activities throughout.

Begining of time

Benn H,
Was so pleased to discover that time was actually invented in Haltwhistle. This was an amazing discovery

Interesting Place to learn about Clocks and Watches.

We came across this Museum by chance and received a warm welcome by the Owner. The items displayed are very interesting and there was a lot that one could learn about both clocks and watches. Well worth a visit!

What a fun place. Enjoyed our visit to this little museum. It's a snippet of history that I found interesting. Go to spot the watches or timepieces you remember your grandparents using! I did.😊 It won't take long to view and read the background to the museum and Diana is lovely. It was charming to read the family history and I hope this continues for years. It's Free and many activities for children to engage in.

Amazing little place for children and adults.

Found by accident. Plenty of activities for children and lady who is daughter of the author of mr george childrens books, was very helpful and put DVD on for our grandchildren.

Very interesting
