This was a great place. Very friendly and welcoming. The lady on the door was great, knowledgeable and friendly. There is a tea room there if you wish to use before/after your tour around. The venue was free too - there is a donation box near the door. Can thoroughly recommend a visit here.

We were heading for the Tudor House owned by the National Trust that turned out to be a few doors further down the street! However, my husband was delighted by the Free Admission sign outside and we thought they must have an open day on. Glad we went in; delightful house with a historical perspective of Worcester.

Go visit if you like time gone by. The volunteers are full of knowledge, it costs nothing to go in, there's a little coffee shop, it's just a good property to go at that's not too large and rambling, full of history.

A very interesting free place to visit. What really made it was the volunteers that work here. So lively, knowledgeable and interesting and the ladies in the tea rooms were so lovely .

Must admit that we weren't expecting much from Tudor House - but it's free and we thought we'd pop in and have a look, having just been to the Commandery and experienced death by audio tour there. And what a difference at Tudor House! We were met by a friendly volunteer who told us about the history of the building... More

Thank-you Daisydaisydaisy for such a lovely review. Feedback like this is really encouraging for all who volunteer here because we love the place. It would be really useful if you had time to say why you didn't expect terribly much to begin with - we know we need to work on our signage at the front when funds allow... Our... More

This is a really interesting historical house an a human scale. The story behind its rescue is really interesting and the garden is charming.

Visited Tudor House on the last day of a five-day stay in Worcester having an unexpected hour or so to spare. It had not been on the top of our visit list as, from the outside it looks a bit like 'ye olde worlde tea shop'. However, I am so glad we did! As others have said, the building is... More

Helen, many thanks for the lovely review. Our volunteer musicians are, on average, here every third Saturday. I don't know whether you realised but one of them isn't sighted, and plays to a very high standard. We are lucky to have them both. More

A hidden gem in the middle of Worcester. A lovely small museum which is free to enter. Full of history and nice to pop in to whilst we were in the town centre. It had a lovely little cafe/coffee shop attached too.

Free entry is always a good enticement to enter! The Tudor House is staffed by volunteers but a small donation helps preserve this historic location. Three separate houses were linked together and there are interesting displays about it's history and also about Worcester. Well worth a visit and easy to find near the town center.
