A taste history in Lymington
Displays will demonstrate the changes to our diet, eating and cooking habits as well as farming and shopping practices in a feast of sensory pleasures from ancient prints to photographs and film. What we eat is linked to the land around us and, in the past, most people would have been involved with food production, perhaps as labourers, smallholders or commoners.
Tickets to A Taste of History and St Barbe Museum, which is open between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Saturday, cost £4 for adults, £3 for senior citizens and students, £2 for children aged five to 15, and £10 for a family of two adults and up to four children; under fives are admitted free of charge.
