The contents of Roald Dahl’s famous Writing Hut, the place where he wrote many of his famous children's stories including The WitchesMatilda and James and the Giant Peach, is relocated from the gardens of Gipsy House to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre.

The structure of the Hut remains in its original location, but the building's entire interior is moved to the Museum, allowing visitors to get a glimpse inside for the very first time. The exhibition includes Roald's original chair - with part of the back removed to accommodate an injury he sustained after his plane crashed in Libya during the Second World War - and the piece of board covered in green felt that he wrote his stories on.
