Walsingham Shirehall Museum

We are pleased to say that the Shirehall Museum will be open again from Saturday 30th July.

Museum entry is included with Abbey Grounds admission, with the entrance to the Museum accessible from inside the Abbey Grounds.

The Shirehall houses Walsingham’s completely original Georgian court room, you are free to explore it and to sit in the judge’s chair or imagine yourself a member of the jury, or the accused!

Pop upstairs (narrow staircase) to the public gallery to get a good view of the courtroom scene.

Also on display, an overview history of Walsingham pilgrimage and its revival, plus a snapshot of local village history together with items from the Norfolk Constabulary’s collections relating to 18th and 19th century policing, law and order.
