There is much more to weaving carpet than you may think! On entering the Museum of Carpet you will find a light, bright and friendly welcome.

You will see large working looms - a sight to behold!

Try your hand with our great interactives, not just for children.

Admire delicate designs and stunning carpets.

You will discover inspiring stories of great inventions, amazing individual endeavours, wealth, poverty and hard work from the people that worked in the industry.

We have a wonderful gift shop where you'll find a great range of gifts and souvenirs.

We have an extensive Archive Collection and Library where you can research the industry. Please just call to make a booking.

Need a place to meet? We can offer you a venue with a difference. Our attractive rooms are available for hire during the day or in the evening.

Coach parties, specialist interest groups, schools and other educational venues have all visited us and had a great experience. Why not call us and see if we can help you with your requirements?

The Trust are very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for their continued support and to Morrison’s and all the Trusts, Foundations and individuals who have contributed to the success of this museum.
