The Beagle has landed at The Royal Mint Experience!

Twenty years after man landed on the moon, man and dog popped up for a picnic. Wallace and Gromit rocketed moonwards in A Grand Day Out in November 1989 and our world was never the same again. To celebrate 30 years of these beloved British characters, a special exhibition has arrived at The Royal Mint Experience.

Available to view now, sets from The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention are on display in our exhibition hall. Alongside the sets, you will be able to trace their progress to superstardom, watch an interview with Merlin Crossingham, Wallace & Gromit Creative Director, as well as footage of Aardman animators working on models of the inseparable duo.

The exhibition is available as a part of The Royal Mint Experience tour and is only here for a limited time. Book your tickets today before Wallace and Gromit blast off on their next adventure!

I will forever be checking my coins! Thanks for the history lesson and tour of the making of the coins – excellent!
Very informative delivering knowledge so we could all understand the process. This tour without a shadow of doubt is one of the best guided tours I’ve ever been on; in fact I would take the tour again!
We spent nearly 4hrs there on Saturday. It was a great experience and you will be surprised for how many countries the Royal Mint is producing coins. A lot to see in the exhibition and the tour of the plant was great
The Royal Mint is a fascinating experience with many 'I didn't know that!' moments. Our tour guide, Lydia, took us through the experience quickly and efficiently and combined historical and fun facts.
