The Vault: An Interactive Experience

The Vault will reopen along with the Information & Gift Shop on Monday 12th April, in line with government guidance.

Unlock the stories of Kirkby Lonsdale…

The Vault is a video installation inside a former bank vault, located at the back of the town’s Information & Gift Shop on Main Street. Behind an iron door, you will find this story bank and interactive film hub which will show you the precious memories of Kirkby Lonsdale.

Take a few minutes to watch one of our films during your stay and get to know some local characters from the past. If you want to learn even more about the tragedy, love and triumph of the town’s local history, you can join one of the town guided walks, where the stories are further brought to life. You will discover the five maids who perished in a fire, Ruskin and Turner’s beloved view and many more unsung heroes. 

The Vault is free to enter but donations are very welcome.
