Tudor House was for Tudor weaver clothiers who made and sold the famous Worcester Broadcloth, and over the centuries has been the Cross Keys Inn, a Quaker tearoom and restaurant, a WW2 Air Raid Warden's post and billet office, a school clinic and a museum.
A group of volunteers known as Worcester Heritage & Amenity Trust opened the house in May 2004 as Tudor House Heritage & Education Centre. In December 2015 Tudor House became a fully Accredited Museum. Displays are complemented by a small giftshop and coffee room serving drinks and cakes.

Take an after-hours tour of the usually off limits spaces in Tudor House! Explore the cellars and attics, and discover the secret architecture hidden from daily view.
At 7.30pm, we will start an exploration with a difference of the museum as we descend below floors to discover the ancient monuments in the cellars. We'll then ascend up stairs to act as building detectives, wandering the attics and seeing the architecture normally a secret only the staff get to see!
