Winter is coming at the Beacon Museum Shop



A wide assortment of gifting options are on offer at competitive prices in the Beacon Museum Shop this Winter.

From locally brewed Tractor shed beer assortments for dad, to jewellery and knitted accessories for mum, the shop has a wide variety of festive offerings. A gift wrapping service is available for those who want to make their own special present bundles.

For stocking fillers, look no further as our local interest books and sweet treats will keep your long Winter evenings occupied. And for the young, and young at heart we have an assortment of retro toys and puzzles, and now a brand new selection of Game of Thrones themed gifts.

The shop is open to all and you don’t have to enter the museum for access. Parking is once again open on site.
