Tudor Merchant's House, Tenby

A 15th-century residence for a trader and his family, Tudor Merchant's House originally had a shop on the first floor and private rooms on the next two. Today, you can tour the house and admire the period furnishings and wall hangings. Check out the working kitchen and brush up on your dining manners (remember to share your plate and cup with someone next to you). Children can try their hand at old strategy games and yoyos, or read the scrolls to discover superstitions from past eras. Tudor Merchant's House is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Tenby Edition.

  • Small but we'll worth a look. Down by the harbour in Tenby
  • Lovely place. While it may only be a very small NT property, it is still a great place to visit - plenty to do, very friendly and helpful Staff/Volunteers, and very interesting to see how they used to live. We spent about an hour and a half there, a lot of which playing some of the old, Tudor games - especially Nine Men's Morris!
  • If you like history it's great to take a tour
  • A wonderful and informative welcome and friendly staff on hand to enhance our visit and learning.
  • Interesting place to spend half an hour
