There is a rare opportunity for clock and watch enthusiasts to see a stunning array of clocks, watches and artefacts that tell a colourful story of the history of timepieces. The Innovation & Collaboration Exhibition takes place from Monday September 3rd to Friday September 14th and will provide a fascinating and unique insight into the innovation and collaboration shown by London clockmakers in the Seventeenth Century.

The work of Edward East, Thomas Tompion and the Knibb and Fromanteel families of clockmakers, together with other clockmakers, is explored in detail, with over 100 long case and table clocks on display.
