Tudor House Museum, Worcester

Situated on one of the most historic streets in Worcester this 16th century timber framed building brings a vanished Worcester back to life. Inside the house you can see the original wattle and daub of the walls and trace 500 year old carpenter’s marks on some of the timber joints.

Standing in Friar Street you will get a good understanding of the Worcester Edward Winslow left behind. The street has many buildings retaining the original style of 1600 that are now grade listed so you will see them as Edward Winslow would have when living near by at Worcester Cathedral.

Inside the rooms are not crowded with furniture but open for you to see. A few choice exhibits (most of which you can touch as well as look at) are complemented by fascinating interpretations of the history of this ancient city.

You can follow the house’s fascinating history from its origins as separate weaver’s cottagers to the Cross Keys Tavern, Mr Cadbury’s Coffee House, a school clinic and World War II ARP Warden’s office and billeting centre. Worcester’s industrial heritage is shown in rare archive photographs and artefacts.

Especially for children there are games to play, a dressing up box and a 'Tudor Rat trail' to follow around the house.
