Tudor House is a fascinating place to see and learn about the history of Worcester. It also has a marvellous tea room with excellent traditional English food and drinks on offer at very reasonable prices. Not to be missed!

Although we have lived in Worcestershire for many years this is the 1st time we have visited. Much more too see than I had envisaged and bigger inside too .We were met by a friendly volunteer who gave us a “run down” of it history and what to see .He was very helpful as were other staff/volunteers. Great exhibitions on... More

GPTULebu, that's a comment we do hear fairly often, which means we must be Worcester's best kept secret! Thank-you for the lovely review and do come back again for one of our special events - we have a talk on historic chocolate making in April, with recreated samples, for instance...

I might well have missed this opportunity if I hadn't checked Trip Advisor before planning my day. It seems many of the locals don't even know it exists! This group of cottages, now effectively one building, contain a fascinating view of this corner of Worcester from the Tudor period to the mid twentieth century. The buildings have had many uses...

Thank-you, Steetonboy, for the positive comments - it was great to meet you. It was that day we were installing display boards so you had a rather different interactive experience! (They are finished now and look good.) More

Firstly, it's only open a couple of days a week, so you need to check before going. We just happened across the place while it was open and thought it might be interesting. We spent well over an hour there and it was excellent. The price, £0.00 was pretty good as well. The rooms are staffed by volunteers and all... More

Thank-you, Pan_viator for the feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed the visit. You are right, access to the first floor of this 500 year old building is difficult if people are unable to use the stairs, and it is something we hope to address in future. At the moment, there is a CD tour of the house available to... More

We popped in expecting to spend a short time in here as, at first glance, it does not look very big. In fact we spend over a hour in the house. Very pleasant (volunteer) staff and excellent dispalys covering all sorts of things. Although free there is a box for donations and we were more than happy to make a... More

OldSue, that's really interesting to know! The house I suppose is a little like a tardis with lots more to see than might be suspected from the pavement. (And until the 1960s and the multi-storey carpark, it had even more buildings out the back and a bowling green...) Hope to see you again, and thank-you for the review. More

Wonderful place to spend an hour or so taking in all the wonderful exhibits. It is easy to walk past and not notice the Tudor House, but take the time to track it down. The staff (volunteers) all do a wonderful job in managing this attraction, and taking the time to show visitors around. It's FREE to go in, but... More

Where else can you see 500 years of life in one place? Wonderful staff that are both helpful and engaging. It is a great display of life from Tudor through modern times.

Very interesting history and the staffs are so helpful. Every single staff is volunteer and they make our visit so happy and useful. The architecture is so preserved and beautiful. Magnificent! Free admission, donation always are welcome. Especially because they rely on donations to keep the Tudor House open.

Well done to the independent organisation who have done loads of work to make this property available to the general public. So much local history well displayed too. It's very unusual to have such an interesting building available to all to view as it's free. Obviously they rely on donations to help the upkeep.

Thank-you - it is really lovely when the charity's efforts are appreciated. Tudor House has been run for ten years by volunteers, raising money from events, donations and the tea room, so it's quite a commitment but it makes for a great atmosphere, which visitors are part of. So glad you enjoyed it! More
