Museum has a peachy time in store for visitors this summer

Visitors to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden are in for a peachy time this summer as the leisure attraction gears up to celebrate one of Roald Dahl’s best-loved books, James and the Giant Peach (Saturday 20 July – Sunday 1 September).

The visitor attraction, set over two floors and featuring artefacts including Dahl’s original writing hut, has a host of activities lined up to keep families entertained Tuesdays – Sundays throughout the school summer holidays.

Younger visitors can look forward to some hands-on workshops inspired by the book including science experiments, making an insect home and creating miniature gardens. There will also be daily storytelling, a themed trail around the museum and a craft room where little ones can get stuck into making their very own Cloud-Men, as featured in the book.

James’ Peachy Summer at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre takes place from 20 July – 1 September 2024 and online pre-booked tickets are £9.95 (concessions available). Children under five years old are free of charge. There is a small additional charge for workshops.  It is not essential to pre-book a visit and walk-up admissions are always welcome but pre-booking workshops is recommended as they sell out fast. For more information, call 01494 892 192, visit, or like and follow @roalddahlmuseum on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest news and updates.
