Strangers' Hall is a fab little attraction in central Norwich - you can walk there easily if you use the station or bus services, and it's like a small-scale stately home. It has nice gardens, too. One of the best attractions to see when visiting the centre of Norwich.

A very enjoyable and informative visit in Norwich. A treasure house of artefacts from various centuries and of interest to a wide variety of visitors including children. Helpful attendants. The information cards in the rooms are helpful but don't always in every detail tie up with what is in the room. When we visited, there was live lute music in... More

If you're in need of something to do on a rainy day this well-curated and interesting museum is well worth the visit. Named after the 'strangers', as the immigrants to Norwich from the Netherlands were known, this museum charts the fascinating history of Norwich.

A wonderful place, packed with history. A good place to take children, as you pass through the centuries as you go from room to room. Starting in 13-14th Century you climb from the Grand Hall up a lovely staircase, then it's up and down across creaking floors through m'lady's bedchamber, through to a series of rooms, perhaps being invited to...

This is a small attraction but very quaint. The house is unusual and a mixture of historical periods. Entry is cheaper late afternoon.

Quirky little museum which literally felt like a step back in time; the unexpected knot garden was a delight! Limited opening times so you have to get your timing right but well worth the visit.

Fantastic old house and living museum set with a lovely enclosed garden The large range of furnished rooms over many periods of time is quite excellent. We both loved the ancient toys especially the Noah's arc and over 200 animals. A great place to visit. I think the best museum we have visited in many years

Lovely Querky Museum!!! This museum has loads to see and is very interesting, there are so many rooms to go into and see different things, it's not ideal for wheelchairs or anyone who can't walk very easily as there are a lot of stairs on different levels.

STranger's Hall is a wonderful place to visit. Sweet lady guides tell you stories of the former owners. Lovely garden behind the house. Furnished rooms and kitchen, use your Imagination and get carried back in history.
