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

Our first visit to the Tudor House but it will not be the last. Run by very friendly and knowledgable volunteers who were happy to talk about the house and the many roles which it has seen over the years. The house was filled with interesting artefacts from the past and the audio/visual presentation described some of the history of... More

Only open Weds and Sats - seemed run by volunteers. Small but interesting the different uses to which had been put in its long history. Seemed to cater fro children well and had a cafe

Ran by volunteers, this enchanting house is unspoilt. The voluntary helpers fill you with enthusiasm and are eager to share but not impose.

Two separate places but only a short distance from one another. The NT is quite small, won't take long to get around. Fine if you are in Worcester, but I wouldn't make the journey especially for it. They advertised a tour of the surrounding streets, and although the volunteer was very well meaning, it was very lacklustre. Much better to... More
