Interesting time

We took our grandchildren here. They loved the hands on artefacts & particularly enjoyed play with the Victorian toys.

Although relatively cheap, would have felt disappointed paying for this. Being National Trust members meany we didn't have to pay. Needs more information throughout the house. Child's quiz would have been good. Could have had note about what life was like in Elizabethan times - felt we didn't really learn anything. Staff seemed uninterested. So much more could be done.

This is a National Trust Property which is managed by the local Museum service. It is not a large house, but is interesting a well presented. It is certainly worth a look if in Great Yarmouth.

A very nice place to see if you are visiting Great Yarmouth. The house will make you feel you are in a different era.

All I can say is WOW!!!!! Absolutely fantastic and you can touch and feel everything. A must see!!! The detail in the rooms and woodwork is superb. The Victorian kitchen makes you wish for simpler times.

This house is found down on the quay in the historic area of Great Yarmouth. It is managed by the National Trust. This house has been conserved & is a little gem in the old part of Great Yatmouth. There is the usual NT shop as well as the kitchen, scullery & dining room. The staircase & the stained windows... More

Attended on an ordinary Sunday and I must say I was disappointed. No actors or guides giving the tour. We were out in 20 minutes of seeing everything. I came when I was younger with a school trip and really enjoyed this so thought it was worth another visit to see how this had developed. I was disappointed there was... More

We visited on a heritage open day, when entry was free for everyone. I am not sure that the normal charge is good value. Parked nearby on roadside (free 90mins). Rooms are set up in different periods, but the highlight is the story of the property owners through the centuries. Our visit was done in less than an hour.

Worth a visit. Shows what life was like in the past and offers an insight into the history of Great Yarmouth. We were lucky enough to go on the heritage weekend and there was a very knowledgeable lay there.
