The Tour is a wide-ranging look behind the scenes of the World's Largest Costumiers, it is not intended to be a research visit. We offer a separate research facility for fashion houses and if your enquiry relates to this do let us know and we will get the appropriate team to assist you. If your tour requires specific items selecting from our stock this can be arranged for an extra charge. Please note that photography and recording is not permitted on our tours.
What does The Tour include?
A tour of the collection takes approximately two hours and we look at all the departments in Angels including Mens Tailoring, Ladies Making, Alterations, Uniform Department, Fancydress.com, Ecclestical, Light Entertainment and many more.
Spaces on The Tour are strictly limited to 12 people (including group leaders etc), the smaller your group the more of the building you will be able to see. For a full group of 12 it may not be possible to visit some of the smaller departments.
Participants need to be able to walk quite a distance; we will be on our feet for almost two hours. Wheelchair users are welcome, please do mention at the time of enquiring if you have a wheelchair user in your group.
Tour information is provided as an indication of what is possible and not all areas will be available at the time of your visit. If something is of particular interest then do mention that when you enquire about The Tour service. Please note that photography and recording is not permitted on the tour.
