Welcome to Amberley Museum

Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre is a 36 acre site set in the South Downs National Park.

Dedicated to the industrial heritage of the South East, exhibits include a narrow-gauge railway and bus service (both provide free nostalgic travel around the site), Connected Earth telecommunications hall, electricity hall, printing workshop and much more.

The Museum is also home to traditional crafts people, such as the blacksmith and potter. Visitors can enjoy hot and cold refreshments in the Limeburners and purchase souvenirs and books in the gift shop.
