The small white cottage known as Winkies Castle is located at No. 162 on the East side of Marske High Street about 150 metres from the Roundabout down towards the Sea . It is set back a little from the road and next to a leatherwork shop .

Please note we do not have any parking facilities at the Museum, the nearest car park is at the rear of the Ship Inn, 125mtrs further down the High Street (Temporary Parking allowed by kind permission of the Managers) Good food available here at reasonable prices.

Car parking is also available on the East side of the roundabout behind the shops – there is no parking charge or time limit.

For those who wish to stay a little longer in Marske there are a number of cafes for drinks & snacks plus outlets for fish’n chips, pizzas and chinese take-aways . There are also two other public houses along the High Street up towards the railway station.

Other Places to Visit:
