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

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...

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

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. Lots of various types of exhibits, including hands on things for kids. Take your time, since it seems like everywhere you look there is something unique. There is... More

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

The staff were most friendly, offering recommendations and super value. We only called in for morning tea and tea cake but ended by doing a tour of this historic house.

We literally stumbled across this wonderful Tudor House purely by accident. We were greeted at the entrance by an extremely friendly volunteer who informed us of the many owners the house has had over the past 500 years. It still retains many of it's original features (check out the ceiling at on top floor) and is rumoured to have four... More

Thank-you Caroline, for such a positive review - we enjoy it when visitors love the house as much as we the volunteers do! Keep an eye on our website for children's holiday activities if you are in Worcester again. More
