The Pankhurst Centre provides a museum area open to all and a women only space that is a unique environment in which women can learn together, work on projects and socialise. The Centre is of historical significance as it was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters Sylvia, Christabel and Adela who were centrally involved in the campaign for Votes for Women.

The small Pankhurst museum pays tribute to the Pankhurst family and the Suffragettes. It is open for visitors to look around and discover more about the movement and the family. The Pankhurst parlour, recreated as it may have been during the time the Pankhurst family lived there, has become a memorial to the Suffragette movement.

The Women's Centre includes a workshop and training rooms in which many courses are run throughout the year, on everything from DIY to complementary therapy as well as a weekly drop-in group for women every Thursday from 11 until 2.
