From Our Editors

Established in 1996, Seven Stories is a museum devoted to children's literature, illustrations and storytelling. Named The National Centre for Children's Books in 2012, the museum turned a seven-storey Victorian flour mill into a hub for exhibitions, storytellers and events. Little ones can also visit the basement studio, where they can dress up, draw and play to become immersed in the stories they read. The centre is packed with reading corners, and available for birthday parties and venue hire.

Seven Stories do not understand how the Groupon deal works! You need to book a slot in advance to go in and complete a form. They get very upset if you turn up, having already paid £45 for a family ticket, expecting to use it.

We absolutely loved our time at Seven Stories, my son loved interacting with all the displays and the storytelling session was excellent. Lots to do and we will definitely be going again. My only criticism would be that the cafe didn’t have gluten free bread despite stating on the website and menus that they “always” had it. My friends daughter has allergies so it meant she could only have a jacket potato which was rock solid, we checked the website before going to ensure that she would be able to eat something so it was definitely disappointing but I’m sure we just caught them on an off day.
