The Rectory

Explore the Victorian world of the Hobhouse family set in 1875. In this restored old home, where Emily lived from her birth until she was 34 years old, you can step back in time.

The War Rooms

Here a short overview of the Anglo Boer War is given. The extraordinary impact Emily had on the events of the war is honoured. You will experience installations, animations, films, virtual reality, and see décor, historical pictures, and original artefacts.
