Explore the most complete workhouse in existence and immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere as the audio guide (based on archive records) brings the 19th-century inhabitants back to life. Find out about poverty through the years with the help of the interactive displays, then meet the Reverend Becher, the founder of The Workhouse, in the introductory film. Discover the segregated work yards, day rooms, dormitories, master’s quarters and cellars, then see the recreated working 19th-century garden and food the paupers would have eaten.
