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
