We had a trip to Bromyard to visit the ‘Time Machine  Museum of Science Fiction’. We arrived in Bromyard in time for lunch only to find that due to the bank holiday most places were shut. We also noticed that some places had closed permanently due to the lockdowns affecting business. We retraced our steps to the Brockhampton Estate for lunch in a teashop that we enjoyed on previous visits to Brockhampton.

When we arrived we found that the teashop had also been a victim of Covid 19 and had not reopened after the 2020/21 lockdowns. We made our way to the National Trust Granary Kiosk and purchased sandwiches which we enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard surrounded by birds hoping for a tasty crumb or two.


After lunch we returned to Bromyard  and took a leisurely walk around the town until the museum opened after lunch. The museum is eclectic and fun. I can confirm that after stepping through the police box door ‘it is’ bigger on the inside ;-)

On the way home we called in at Burford House gardens for a ‘naughty cake’, we both chose lemon drizzle cake which was extremely lemony and delicious.

  1. Lovely photos. That is a great museum my son and I went a few years back and then returned again with my husband. We ate next door in Flower Dews – a lovely tea room but last time I was in Bromyard the building seemed for sale and the tearoom closed – such a dreadful shame.

      Mr C went there with a friend after I read your blog post about it. They ate in Flower Dews. It is no longer a tea shop, I can’t remember what is in there now. There are several teashops still in operation but they were closed due to it being bank holiday monday.

      I thought it was a shame that the the Hop Pole Hotel was in such a sad state of repair. But I now see that there are plans to refurbish it which is good news.
