A fun & interesting look at Tudor life

It looks like a small location from the outside and easy to walk past and dismiss, but it packs a lot in and manages to be fun, interesting and educational!

We had an amazing time during the ghost tour, all the staff are very friendly especially our tour guide Shaun, who was very entertaining but also very informative. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would recommend anyone to do this! We would definitely do this again.

We had a great time visiting Tudor world, the staff a really friendly and the museum itself is small, great fun and offers a lot! We went on the Shakespeare walking tour - our guide was fantastic, entertaining and very knowledgable. Later on we went on the ghost tour in the museum, yet again it exceeded our expectations! The building... More

If you're interested in local history and the Tudors, this is well-worth a visit. Its a small house with a variety of Tudor exhibits which are interactive (trying clothes and chain mail on) and informative. You could even have a go at writing with a quill. The information plaques were really interesting and explained Stratford Upon Avon's place in Tudor... More

Enjoyed this museum with my daughter and granddaughter aged 11. It's quite small but packed with facts and things to do. It's good for children as they can try out the bed and sit on the chair, do some writing with quill and ink, dress up in costumes, smell things in boxes and learn about Tudor life and try to...

I love English history and wanted to see this as I missed it on my last visit. Incredible building but needs a lot of TLC and I thought some of the displays were quite tatty. A shame as it could be so much more. I like what was there but it needs more looking after. A very unpleasant feeling when... More

Went on the 8pm ghost walk, was ok. Just walking through the building in the dark whilst being told a few ghost stories. When reading about it on their website it seems abit hyped up. Not scary at all. Not a bad price for hearing abit of local history in a spooky building. The tour guide was good and in... More

Dear Sam, thank you for your review which is very similar to the previous review for the same reason. You have recently visited the Warwick Castle Dungeons (which is a scare attraction). Many people experience real paranormal activity on our ghosts tours. Some people find this very scary, whilst some people prefer 'fake' scares, with people jumping out at you.... More

JanetF2301, Manager at Tudor World, responded to this review

Dear Trevor, thank you for your lovely review. We assume you are commenting on the evening ghost tour? In response to comparisons with 'scare attractions', we find that visitors prefer good old-fashioned story-telling in an historic building with genuine ghost stories to people 'jumping out' at you in the dark. Also, to employ so many actors would require a substantial... More

It's a fantastic introduction to the Tudor period and our mixed age range group thoroughly enjoyed the visit. "Thomas" was a delight and kept popping up to inform and entertain us. We loved it all and would definitely recommend a visit - fun and educational what's not to like?!! One thing though it isn't buggy/pram friendly and once inside you... More
