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.

  • This is a real treat. The house is superbly presented by very able guides. Learn and see how people lived 450 years ago. It's a real shocker!  more »
  • Every member of the staff we met on the tour were an absolute fountain of knowledge. They individually brought the whole scenario to life, very very knowledgeable, a joy to visit.  more »
  • Guides were good and items very interesting. It was very atmospheric and you really got a feel for how people lived in the house. Items to handle e.g. old games.  more »

  • National Trust property so free for us. Great historical place. Staff knew there stuff and were great with the kids. Kids and adults can dress up in the clothes of the day. Plenty of things to pick up and look at. A hands on museum. Great views.
  • A real step back in time, wonderfully restored and thought provoking. Enthusiastic volunteers on hand to help get the most from a visit. Not a big house and it won't take long to see everything but well worth it.
  • The house is a 3-story home, showing how life would have been in the 1500s for a well-to-do family. It includes a small herb garden and a range of period toys and clothes for the kids. If you've got a membership, it's worth a 30 minute stop, but it's not as impressive as the name would have you believe
  • A very special place. Wonderful atmosphere.
  • 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!
