Have you been to Portland Basin Museum lately? There’s a lot going on!
Every Tuesday and Thursday there is a craft activity led by an artist (11am to 3pm) and on both Wednesdays Tommy Atkins will be present (11am to 3pm) to explain the kit, uniform and rations British soldiers used in the First World War.
Portland Basin is rated as excellent on Trip Advisor and a recent visitor wrote: “We have been to lots of museums in Manchester and Liverpool but were amazed at this lovely museum in Ashton.
“The children loved the school and shops. They enjoyed the little market play area and had lots of fun. A wonderful way to spend a rainy morning with children. Adults were also impressed.”
Portland Basin is open Tuesday to Sunday (10am to 4pm) and closed Mondays (except bank holidays). Admission is free
