Tudor House is an early 16th Century building that was once 3 houses, lived in by Tudor weavers and their families. With the decline of the cloth trade, publicans, artists, paupers, merchants, dentists and a member of the Cadbury family used this building in a variety of ways. Visit us to discover their stories.

The collection focuses on the history of the house and the world events that shaped the people's lives, from the 16th Century to the mid-20th. Their occupations, pastimes and preoccupations moulded this house and left traces for us to find.

Hidden Spaces, Secret Places Tour

As part of the national Museums at Night festival, we are offering the chance to take part in our once-a-year-only, after-hours tour of the usually off limits spaces in Tudor House! Explore the cellars and attics, and discover the secret medieval foundations 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!

Tickets are £8 per person and include refreshments after the tour. Please note that there is no disabled access to either the attics or the cellars.
