Great museum and really good audio tours from our brief impression of them. Unfortunately the Easter hunt for the kids spoiled it for us to be honest. One of the kids did the easy one, the other did the harder one. After initially listening to the audio tour and exploring the museum for a few minutes, we realised that if... More

Went today with my boyfriend, sister and her fiancé. Was absolutely brilliant! I've been meaning to go since I moved to Worcester (2 years ago) and finally got around to it today. Definitely don't be put off by the outside, it's hard to believe how big it is! There's 35 rooms to walk around with the audio tour. Most of... More

Recently went to this attraction to a reenactment. This place is great. Had a great tour guide called Mat (although he left there some time ago!) he was full if amazing facts and fiction of the building, the surroundings and just about anything royal and war!! There are lifts for the less able and facilities to help. Definitely recommend.

well if u enjoy parading through empty rooms....have fun....its a totally mundane experience that left me thoroughly bored after 5 mins. walking around listening to some dreary voiced person talk whilst being asked to try and imagine the rooms in their former glory is not my idea of a historic review of what would be a great experience if they...

The building doesn't look that grand from the street, but once inside it opens up into a courtyard with three ranges of buildings and gardens beyond. There is a lot to see. There is an audio guide that takes you around the building and tries to give an impression of what it would have been like in the past. There... More

Don't be put off by mininal frontage, but behind the door is a treasure trove of old buildings. These buildings mediaeval through to Georgian brought to life by a brilliant audio guide system that let's you choose which period of history. Choices were mediaeval, Tudor, Civil War, Victorian as a blind school or a printing works. Abosulutely fascinating visit.

The history of this building is fascinating, but to understand it you must listen to 6 different accounts on an audio guide, as little else is clearly presented. As audio guides tend to tell personal stories much is lost for those without a day to spare.

Went with Probus. Deceptively spacious building but you have to use your imagination. Lots of interesting 17th century woodwork and some exhibits.

Our ghost walk ended here, where we enjoyed a mulled wine to finish the evening. This is a building that most definitely deserves a visit of its own, and we will certainly be doing just that.
