Harvard House and the Museum of British Pewter

Shop icon

An architectural gem, boasting an ornately carved timber framed frontage, Harvard House is a fine example of an Elizabethan town house, rebuilt in 1596 by master butcher Thomas Rogers.
His daughter Katherine was the mother of John Harvard, who gave his name to the USA's Harvard University.

The house is also the home of the Museum of British Pewter, and the complete pewter experience gives fun for all the family: there are videos, interactive computers and a children's activity area, as well as metal-working benches for making a unique souvenir to take away. A small shop sells beautifully-crafted gifts
