The shelves and workbenches at Newman Brothers are full of original stock and tools of the trade.

You will enter a time capsule where the music of the 60s is piped into the building, mingled with the industrial sounds of a working factory.

After the tour, your tea and cake will be served in our cosy 60s style waiting room, which is designed to capture the atmosphere of the Newman Brothers staff cafeteria, complete with vintage china. Relax and enjoy a proper cuppa with a delicious slice of cake.
