Claphams Clocks

This museum is not as much an antique collection as it is a collection that reflects Archibald Claphams love of the clocks and his fondness for the quirky.
The atmosphere and sound effects in this museum are not to be missed!This museum's emphasis is on a vast variety of clocks, over 1300, and many different ways of telling the time, right back to 2000 BC. The more unusual clocks are kept running and each clock tells a story about its owner and country of origin.
