  • Tudor World is some kind of fake Tudor museum, trying to take you into that time of filth and horror. I cannot say that I enjoyed it, because I think I expected more from it, maybe to be more interact...  more »
  • A group of us went on a walking tour organised by Tudor World. The guide was dressed as the Bard himself. It was entertaining, informative and humorous. We enjoyed every minute of it. Well worth it. H...  more »

  • My friend and I have been recommend to leave our bags here, £1 a bag sounds like a pretty good deal! We had a look in the little store. The narrow cobble stones leading up to the entrance of the museum almost give you the sense of going back in time. We ended up opting for the two hour Shakespeare tour. I would highly recommend to young and old. Our guide called Shakespeare was fantastic he had the right amount of humour to keep you entertained. The tour was insightful and educational. If you want something cheap and worth your money, go on this tour!!
  • The museum is OK and quite interactive. More suitable for kids than adults. We had a Groupon voucher so got 2 for price of 1 tickets. Would have been disappointed if paid full price. Was OK to use some time up.
  • A few pounds each for an interesting look through an old Tudor house with some really good displays
  • It is one of the most unusual and interesting museums in the country, with recreations of the Tudor /Elizabethan period Set in a genuine building that dates back to 1596. It also has one of the most comprehensive education packages for schools covering The Tudors, Shakespeare and Elizabethan theatre. The museum receives no funding /subdidies from government or charities,and the upkeep of the building is entirely paid for by revenue from museum visitors.
  • Really interesting place to visit, thought it was a bit short but there is loads to read inside
