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

Visited here as part of our English Heritage pass. It was an amazing house and really showed what it would have been like in the medieval times and has been well preserved.

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.
