Step inside elegant Westbury Manor in the heart of Fareham to discover a wealth of stories about the town’s people, heritage and industrial past.
Formerly home to no less than six admirals of the fleet, explore Westbury Manor to find out about the borough’s origins as a Stone Age settlement, the infamous workhouse scandal of 1837, its long traditions of brickmaking and strawberry production and much more.
There is plenty for all the family to do during your visit. Become an amateur archaeologist and handle real artefacts, pretend to be a Roman or Victorian and dress up in costumes they would have worn, have fun with our museum trail quiz, while children will love to discover the past through play with our hands-on history playsets. While you are here, enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in our café, and browse the wide selection of gifts and local produce available in our museum shop.
Throughout the year, we run a programme of touring exhibitions, as well as fun events and activities for all the family to enjoy.
