This beautiful 16th century building in the heart of historic Friar Street is run as a museum by volunteers. Displays focus on the house's past, as a home to Tudor weavers through to its use as an ARP Warden's office in WW2, and a school clinic thereafter. A cafe serves tea, coffee and wrapped cakes on vintage bone china. There is a Tudor Rat trail for children. Open Wednesday and Saturday 10-4, and Thursdays in the summer.

We were just passing and, on impulse, decided to have a peek inside; it being the start of the Christmas Fayre and it feeling very festive and the house looking beautiful through the windows. I asked very politely if we might have a quick look for which we were fully prepared to buy something while there to defray costs but... More

TudorHouse1550, Manager at Tudor House, responded to this review

Dear Frohlix I'm very sorry to hear about your poor experience. However, I note from your comments that you refer to the National Trust and to paying for entry. As Tudor House is free entry and a completely independent museum (not even a small part of the National Trust), I assume you were referring to the National Trust property on... More

I visited this museum with my primary school many years ago & always remembered it fondly, but couldn't remember where it was in the city. A couple of years ago, at the Victorian Christmas fayre, I found it. I proceeded to bring my nephew in the next summer, who loved it. Then his school has visited and he wants to... More

There is so much to see, you think it's quite small when you first walk in and then, as you walk around and it opens up, you go upstairs and it just gets better and better until finally you're right at the the top..and wow...fantastic...go back downstairs for one final surprise...the garden...so lovely...a fitting legacy from the lovely very talented...

Dear Jenn Thank you for your review, but I think you may have confused us with Tudor House in Upton upon Severn - there are many similarities! That is a fascinating museum: several years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Lavender, who was dedicated to keeping it open for the benefit of the town. I'm glad you enjoyed your... More

This museum is a great piece of history all the way up to WWII. The nice part is the area around the museum is protected from development, so the street looks very close to what it was in the 1900's.

If you have visited Greyfriars, walk along the road to find out more about Worcester's industrial and hidden history. Informative and please leave a donation to keep this museum open

The Tudor House is only open on certain times so check online before you visit. It is just up the road from Greyfriars so you could doboth properties in one day. Frair Street is the only remaining street in Worcester to retain the black and white buildings that escaped the council's modernisation. The Tudor House is well worth a visit... More

Hotel receptionist advised walking alon this street full of half-timbered buildings in various stages of leaning! Amazing. Came across the Tudor House and decided to go in. The volunteer was very informative and then let you go and explore on your own, a very good idea. The Tudor Room was the jewel-in-the-crown with a close second the room relating to... More
