Wygston’s House is the oldest house in Leicester. It has been here since medieval times and the road it stood on was the widest and busiest thoroughfare in the town, High Street.
The house comprises a timber hall of around 1490; a brick block of 1796 which replaced an earlier timber shop and chamber and a Victorian (1800s) wing standing on the site of the medieval kitchen.
