Welcome to the
Farnham & District Museum Society



The Farnham & District Museum Society aims to support the Museum of Farnham and is concerned with the History, Archaeology, Natural History and other matters of interest in Farnham and the surrounding area.  

The Society presents a series of lectures through the winter and publishes a Quarterly Journal covering aspects of local interest, occasional publications and holds seminars at the museum.


If you require specific information about the history of Farnham and its people or the museum and its collections then please contact the museum directly through their website,  by email or by phone on 01252 715094.

Please note that to see the latest updates to these pages you may need to Reload/Refresh the page (F5 on most Windows browsers).

All Talks and Seminars have been cancelled until further notice.




We will advise on any further changes.


New Publication





The author, Roy Waight, is a member of our society, he offer us the fruits of his research and endeavours in this very readable, fascinating comprehensive study of the castle right up to the present day.


The result is a magnificent book, a pleasure to read, but full of absorbing details of the castle we all think we know. It is full of diagrams, maps, pictures, explanatory tables and graphs, in fact a treasure trove of information presented in an interesting form.


As we are unable to have a physical launch, we invite you to our virtual launch (cake not provided, sadly), and to purchase a copy directly from us.


Details are on the Publications page.
