A great place to visit if you are looking for English History. It has been completely refurbished and is not the tired old building it used to be

The Tudor House and Garden is run by the local council but it does not look like it. There are a number of interactive activities as well as head sets for those which like to hear a bit more information. It runs you through the history of the town through the house. An interesting visit especially around the Tudor time.... More

Went to the Tudor House this past weekend with my partner. Was such a great experience. I must urge people to take the audio guide with them, it's so informative and has so much fascinating information - also helps with the instructions to tell you where to go as it is a bit of a maze! The introduction display in... More

Have been meaning to visit the Tudor House for ages. The house itself has lots of history dating back hundreds of years. There is a lovely cafe looking out onto the gardens. I used the audio guide which you don't pay extra for. Takes a couple of hours to go around properly. Staff are very welcoming and helpful.

Nothing has changed in the 50 years I was last here............except it is better! Obviously a lot more restoration and interactive things for children to do. A not to be missed visit to see a genuine Tudor house when a lot of the more "modern" structures have disappeared and been replaced in the area. A pint in the nearby Wellington... More

At £4 entry it is very easy to visit. Agree with earlier comments about the beginning and the odd audio-visual presentation being a bit out of keeping with the rest of the house. Good selection of displays in the rooms, though the boards in the garden could do with a clean up - lots of bird poo, leaf litter and... More

The strange AV presentation is a bit disconcerting, but after that it is interesting inside, especially the explanation of what the view down to the docks would have been, and the mercantile history of the area. The gardens have some interesting displays, too. A good cafe for tea and cakes.
