Tudor House, Worcester
(4.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Standing in the most historic street of Worcester, England, is a wonderful building of timber beams, leaded windows and decorated plaster ceilings. Admission is FREE and inside you will find rooms almost five hundred years old. A few choice exhibits (some of which you can touch as well as look at) are complemented by fascinating interpretations of the history of Worcester. Displays of local history, crafts and culture over several rooms are complemented by a shop and coffee room serving drinks and cakes.

In the five centuries since it was built Tudor House has been used as a work place for weavers, clothiers, tailors, bakers, painters and brewers. It was once the Cross Keys Tavern, Cadbury's Tudor Coffee House, an air raid wardens' post and billet office, a school clinic and a museum.

A group of volunteers known as Worcester Heritage & Amenity Trust opened the doors in May 2004 to keep the building available to the public as Tudor House Heritage & Education Centre. It is run entirely by volunteers, some of the city's best guides, artists, historians and craftspeople giving up their time for the pleasure of working in a special place.

Open Wednesday 13:00 - 16:00

Saturday 10:00 - 16:00

Also open Thursdays during the Summer

  • 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. 
  • What a surprising find and the enthusiasm of the volunteers really added to being transported back in time. Thank you. 
  • 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
