Experience the lives of families who lived in this splendid sixteenth century quayside house from Tudor to Victorian times.

Discover Victorian life 'upstairs and downstairs' and find out what it was really like to work in the kitchen and scullery. Decide for yourself if the death of Charles I was plotted in the Conspiracy Room. There are exciting hands-on activities throughout the house: your family can dress up in Tudor costumes, and children can play in the activity-packed toy room.

Finally, pause for a moment of peace in the small but delightful walled garden.

The Elizabethan House is owned by the National Trust and managed by Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service.
