Event Details

Your day will start with the Introducing the Roundhouse tour. An informal and interactive guided tour of the Roundhouse site, which tells the Roundhouse’s story from canal wharf to noisy Victorian public works stables, right through to a new purpose as a modern-day heritage and wellbeing hub. After lunch, take a short guided walk along the canal to the Coffin Works for a tour of their beautiful space. 

In its time, the Coffin Works was a Victorian Jewellery Quarter factory and produced some of the world’s finest coffin furniture, including those for many royals. Today the workbenches are still full of all the original stock and tools of the trade, and with some of the original machinery working again, you can truly experience the sights, sounds and stories of this hidden gem.

The Roundhouse, the canals and the Coffin Works are extremely photogenic. Be sure to bring your camera! 

The experience will take around 4 hours 30 minutes in total, starting at the Roundhouse at 11:30am. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time to get checked in. The Coffin Works Tour will finish at 4pm.
