Victorian Kitchen & Laundry

You may be surprised to find an underground tunnel in a museum! It used to join this building, once a laundry, to the now-demolished Ilfracombe Hotel and was used by the staff to carry linen back and forth. There is a collection of laundry equipment that would have been used in those days and at the far end is a recreation of a Victorian kitchen complete with cooking range.

This gallery now also houses a display of medical artefacts
