82 Ale at Amberley 11 – Beer Festival
Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre
Near Arundel, West Sussex
Tel: 01798 831370
Facebook: Amberley Museum
Open: Standard Museum opening times are Wed to Sun, 10am to 5pm.
For the Beer Festival, please see below. Amberley Museum is an amazing place tucked away in the South Downs between Storrington and Arundel, with a focus on industrial and transport history. Most days the bus service is running, as well as the narrow gauge railway which takes visitors from near the entrance right to the far end where the electricity, communications and railway exhibition halls can be found. It’s well worth a visit with plenty to do in all weathers. On 2nd to 4th September we celebrate our 11th Ale at Amberley beer festival, with many locally sourced beers and ciders. Please see our website for full details.
