Visit Our Permanent Exhibition
We'll be closed from Thursday 8th December for refurbishment. Our new-look exhibition opens in February 2023 - watch this space!
The Marks in Time exhibition at the M&S Company Archive celebrates the role that Marks & Spencer has played in peoples' lives for over 135 years. Here, you can explore the development and impact M&S has had on the social history of Britain. From boardroom battles to staff welfare, from puddings to pants, the exhibition explores how M&S has led the way in innovation, quality and service.
Featuring unique artefacts, historic garments and films and photographs from the Archive, the exhibition tracks the journey from market stall to Penny Bazaar to international retailer. M&S is woven into the fabric of the UK - from the clothes we wear to the food we eat. Which of your M&S favourites will you discover?
- Original artefacts from the 1900s to the present day
