We went on the evening ghost talk at Tudor World Monday evening ( 2adults and a teenager). Really enthralling hour with our host Ebenezer - who was knowledgeable and great fun. Great value for money. Thank you.

Something else to see if you enjoy walking through history. They have fun interactive items spotted around, for example, boxes that contain a smell of what it used to smell like in the market at that time. Careful of low beams! Some areas could be refined, there are random laminated posters spotted around which doesn't fit in with the rest... More

Very entertaining! Good value for an hours tour of the building. Requires some audience participation. Not for the moody and cynical types, just lighthearted fun.

Not bad value for £6 entry, each. Wouldn't even get you a couple of coffees in a fancy coffee shop! It was what you make of it; some previous reviewers complained that it wasn't 'inter-active', it didn't actually profess to be!! The exhibits were informative and interesting. It's entirely up to the individual whether you want to stand and look... More

Visited on our trip to Stratford upon Avon. Easy to find. Plenty to see. Great for children to learn about this era. Lots of information about. Worth the entrance fee. Would recommend a visit.

Fun but short and enjoyable. Suitable for children and nice staff. Not great for me though as I have a fear of mannequins

£6 per adult and it literally took us 5 minutes to walk through! Not really interactive...just a very small house with a few artefacts. Really wouldn't go back!

Super evening ghost walking, great stories told with a couple of them sending shivers down the spine. Lovely house and a great tour guide showing us around. The tour guide helps get you into the 'spirit' of things. The prices aren't 'scary'...!

Cheap in every sense. It is only £6 for an adult, but somehow I still feel like we were overcharged. From the photo's on the website I thought there would be more interaction - sitting at the Elizabethan dining table was literally sitting on a bench by a table with some very plastic looking food on it - the website...

JanetF2301, Manager at Tudor World, responded to this review

Dear Nita, thank you for your review. It is of course very easy to find fault with small independent museums like ourselves that receive no funding or grants and maintain an historic building through visitor fees alone. Small museums work very hard with the little resources they have and it would be good if they received help or even acknowledgement... More
