  • I visited here on the way back from holiday in Wales. Fortunately the cafe was open and we had a lovely piece of cake and excellent coffee. But what a revelation! Most Trust properties are about...

  • Was pleasantly surprised as I didn't realise that there was both a Visitors Centre AND The Firs with the most beautiful cottage type garden as well. My visit was at the same time as two school visits but the children weren't in the cottage so I was left to wander quite happily with just one or two other visitors. Although not knowing a huge amount about Elgar, I do enjoy his music and found all the exhibits really interesting. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area. The cafe wasn't available when I visited due to a lack of staff but the staff that I did meet were friendly and full of Elgar information.
  • A delightful visit to the historic birthplace of a great composer. The guides made this experience so worthwhile, sharing theor knowledge and passion of the great man. The exhibition display boards were very interesting, as were the artifacts, but the highlight was the talk and musical snippets shared by the guide Richard. Visiting the small cottage and gardens was the icing on the cake. If you are interested to find out more there are books (many for £1 to £5) and CDs/vinyl for very reasonable prices. Also on site is free parking, picnic benches outside, toilets and a cafe.
