Tymperleys Clock Museum - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The entrance to the Tymperleys Clock Museum is through an inauspicious arch from Trinity Street. This opens up into a fantastic little courtyard in front of the old timber frame house that contains the museum. It is worth walking into the area for this alone, the house is in sharp contrast to all the other modern buildings of Colchester that surround it. An added bonus are the delightful gardens next to it. This panorama shows the front of the museum and some of the gardens.

Tymperleys Clock Museum is a popular tourist attraction in Colchester. As the name suggests, the focus of the museum is clocks. The museum is housed in a beautiful fifteenth century timber framed house, once home to William Gilberd, scientist and physician to Elizabeth I, which is worth a visit in it's own right. All the clocks on display here are part of the Bernard Mason Collection, which is one of the largest collections of clocks in Britain. All the items on show were made
in Colchester between 1640 and 1840. Entrance to the museum is free.
Attached to the house is also a lovely and restful garden. Other notable museums in Colchester include the Colchester Castle Museum, Natural History Museum and the Hollytrees Museum with it's associated Sensory Gardens.
