Much as we enjoy the Forties House being our everyday home, it is always great fun to share it with others, to see it through their eyes and hear their memories.  For younger visitors, it is an opportunity to discover how ordinary people lived eighty years ago.

From the crackle of the gramophone records to the scents of coal fires and carbolic soap, experience the sights, sounds and smells of daily life in the 1940s.  You will see what were the latest ideas in modern home-making and furnishing and how advances in labour-saving technology made life easier and more comfortable.


Our usual guided tour is for a group of up to six visitors and takes about an hour.


An information booklet is provided for each visitor.

The tour is over ground- and first-floor rooms which are connected by a staircase.



Our next Doors Open Day event will be at the beginning of September 2020.

If you have a group who would like to visit before then, please send an email using the Contact Us link.



We are in Central Cupar, ten minutes' walk from rail and bus links.  On-street parking is available outside the property.
