Sick to Death is open:

Thursday, Friday, Saturdays and Sundays, 11am – 4pm

Sick to Death explores the story of medicine through time in a fun, hands on and interactive way.

Absolutely not! The exhibition has been designed by a team of award winning archaeologists and heritage professionals. Whilst it is gruesome in parts, it explores the narrative of medicine though time. Whilst suitable for children aged 6 and over, the themes are linked to the Medicine Through Time GSCE, and so ideal for students of all ages.

The attraction is set within a 700 year old Grade I listed building, and as such there are restrictions to what facilities are available. There are no toilets on site, but are available at a nearby pavilion, and staff are able to point out other nearby facilities upon request. There is a small shop selling soft drinks and snacks on site, and we have an outdoor picnic area should you wish to bring your own food. We also have picnic blankets you can borrow should you want to stay a while longer.

Yes, the entire tower complex is available for private tours and some events. Email us on for more information.
