TOM BROWN’S SCHOOL MUSEUM
Fascinating local museum housed in the former village school room, built in 1617 next to the church, and which features in the book, 'Tom Brown's Schooldays' (1857) by Thomas Hughes. Hughes grew up in Uffington. Another famous resident was the poet, John Betjeman, who lived there with his family in the 1930s and '40s. The museum contains information about both Hughes and Betjeman as well as local sites like the Uffington White Horse. It also has an excellent website. Limited opening.
