Tudor House and Garden
The re-opening of Tudor House and Garden Saturday 30 July 2011 marks the culmination of the repair of the House and the renewal of all the displays and facilities. The project, led by the city council with major support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and generous local donations, sees the House ready for its next phase as the city’s most significant listed building.
Vsitors will discover a Tudor House that’s familiar yet ready for the next 100 years. Cutting-edge technology, designed specifi cally for Tudor House, a sound and light show, original artefacts and new displays will tell the story of the house through the lives of the people who lived and worked there.
It’ll also be easier to explore the house, with a platform lift to the first floor and a ‘virtual tour’, uncovering the hardest to reach places. Despite all this, the quirky character of the building remains - only without leaking gutters, rotten beams and draughty windows. The garden will also re-open to the public following a careful renewal and replanting.
