Pre-pay Vouchers - Full Foundry Tour
Why not treat your loved one to a unique experience with a gift voucher for one of our Full Foundry Tours? Vouchers mean that your friend or family member will be able to enjoy all the fun of a bellfoundry visit at a time that's convenient for them!
The Full Foundry Tour includes the following:
- A short introductory talk and film in the Old Laboratory from one of our highly-knowledgeable expert guides
- A tour of the main Works hall where bells from across the world arrive and dispatch for repairs
- A visit to the woodworking shop to see how bell wheels are crafted into their unique shape
- A visit to the tuning shop to learn about how the magical Taylor’s sound is created
- Access to the viewing platform overlooking the spectacular Victorian casting hall
- The chance to touch and ting bells from across the centuries in the museum
Full Foundry Tours last approximately two hours. Please note that Taylor’s is a working foundry, so what you see on the day will vary according to current jobs. We must emphasise that we can only allow visitors onto the factory floor if they are wearing flat, completely closed shoes.

Please note that the Bellfoundry Museum is scheduled to close for major refurbishment in Summer 2022, so you are strongly advised to redeem your vouchers before this date.
