  • If in Rochester on the tourist trail, dont miss it. Great overview of Rochester history with a huge influence from a certain Charles Dickens. Recommended
  • The house itself is quaint and the history is quite interesting. My daughter enjoyed viewing the bedrooms. However, the extraordinary rudeness from the volunteer on duty, unfortunately, put a bit of a damper on the whole experience.
  • Guy in charge needs to cheer up
  • Open: Wednesday to Sunday 10.00 to 13.00 & 14.00 to 17.00. Open in winter only on some weekends. Price: Admission free. The poor travellers' House was built in 1579, purposed the facade in 1771. In his testament prompted Richard Watts construction, which should serve as a Poorhouse. The House provided those shelter for a night, have nowhere else to go. Above the door is an inscription dating back to 1865, it reads: "for six poor travellers who not being rogues or Proctor may receive free for one night lodging, entertainment and four pence each". The simply furnished rooms convey an impression of the conditions under which the people of the lower class lived
