Really interesting to walk round. Bigger than it looks - over 3 floors, laid out with furniture to help you imagine how it might have been originally. Staff are not at all pushy - there if you want to ask questions but if you just want to wander around they leave you to it, so you can spend ten minutes... More

Situated in the middle of one of the main streets in Hereford – High Town – you can hardly miss it. It is so obvious that most people ignore it yet it is one of the most fascinating gems in Hereford. It may be small but it encompasses much of Tudor life. The exhibits are enthralling and well annotated. There... More

It has undergone many changes in not just occupation but uses being a butchers then several other incarnations, before being a Lloyds Bank. It has Jacobean features and has many lovely items on display. There was no charge for the museum so if you are... More

I do tend to get dragged around many hundreds of old houses by the 'boss'...but this one was worth the visit. Lovely furniture with gorgeous patina. Have a look.

Very well preserved old building with contemporary furniture and old pictures. Worth visiting when in Hereford but perhaps not for making a special trip.

Right in the centre of Hereford you can't miss this tudor building which you can take a look around. Worth a look. Great to see we look after our heritage.

The Old House is situated in the middle of the high street, looking out of place. It's a lovely building with its uneven and creaking floors. It's free and will take your five or ten minutes to look around.

Lovely old house in "black and white" style. Free admission, well worth a visit! Have a look for the Hereford bull outside!

Great little gem in the centre of High Town. This lovely old house is opening all week apart from Sunday and Monday - its free, so even if you pop in for just a quick look around you have lost nothing. They do ask for a donation - or there is a little shop bit - you could always buy... More
