This beautiful 16th century building in the heart of historic Friar Street is run as a museum by volunteers. Displays focus on the house's past, as a home to Tudor weavers through to its use as an ARP Warden's office in WW2, and a school clinic thereafter. A cafe serves tea, coffee and wrapped cakes on vintage bone china. There is a Tudor Rat trail for children. Open Wednesday and Saturday 10-4, and Thursdays in the summer.

This is definitely worth taking a quick look around. It won't take long because isn't big. It dates back to the 16th century, and the history is interesting. The volunteers who run it are wonderful. There isn't an entrance charge, but there is a suggested donation of £2. They don't get any government funding, so they rely solely on donations.

Having never been to Worcester before, im glad i did. Luckily i stumbled past this wonderful little museum by accident, while on the way to the cathedral (I'd gotten off the train at shrub hill) Very helpful volunteers, and was left to wonder and look at things with no hassle. Kepp up the good work!!

This is a lovely little museum which focuses on some of the Tudor aspects of Worcester before jumping to some of the businesses run in and around Worcester in the Victorian and Edwardian era. It has a nice tearoom as well

This only a small museum but it packs a lot in. They take in different eras. You can find out a lot about Worcester long ago. Well worth a visit and so is the cafe and shop.

surprisingly interesting and evocative, the garden is a true delight you would never expect such a fascinating and peaceful spot in the middle of Worcester

I'm glad you had a good trip to Worcester. I think you've left a review for The Greyfriars which is further up Friar Street. Tudor House is lovely but in a different way - sadly, we have no garden! More

Lovely museum run by enthusiastic volunteers. Entry is by donation. Very well displayed and extremely interesting. Due to the layout of the building/museum it is not disabled friendly. Steep staircases but if you are able would definitely put it on the "To Visit" list.

This is a beautiful old building and the ladies who run it are all very pleasant and helpful. We called for tea and cake during the Christmas Market. It was a great place to take a little break from shopping and enjoy a lovely cuppa.
