It's so old....

It is strange having such an old property surrounded by new buildings, although the second world war had a little hand in that.

The Medieval Merchant's House gives a unique view of what it was like in the medieval times and has been put together quite well and with a lot of care. It is well worth the time to wander about to get a real feel for what it must have been like to live like that.

It is a very well preserved medieval house, featuring original furniture, architectural details and clothing. We enjoyed this visit very much. Note that it is open only on Sundays from 12 to 5.
