Overview

This beautiful 16th century building in the heart of historic Friar Street is run as a museum by volunteers. Displays focus on the house's past, as a home to Tudor weavers through to its use as an ARP Warden's office in WW2, and a school clinic thereafter. A cafe serves tea, coffee and wrapped cakes on vintage bone china. There is a Tudor Rat trail for children. Open Wednesday and Saturday 10-4, and Thursdays in the summer.

A wonderful medieval house run as a museum by volunteers. Each room shows a different aspect of the history of the city, with my favourite being the recreation of the pub which closed in 1912. The staff are very pleasant and they deserve the donation...More

When I came to spend Easter here, it was after 25 years of visiting London and the Eastern part of UK. Worcester simply charmed me with everything...its people, its tiny street cafe.s and reastaurants, its historically rich snd impressive cathedral. Today I.m visiting Malvern

Tudor building with a range of rooms and exhibits. It is not a professional museum so a bit haphazard but that adds to its charm. Nice tea rooms
