We passed this house earlier on in the day and noticed the amasing knitted tea cosies with the intention of returning. We returned just as they were closing. Were in time to buy a tea cosy but seemingly too late to order a pot of tea! They insisted that they accommodated us. One of the volunteers was touching up the... More

I cannot count the number of times I have walked past this museum and have not given it any thought. However, we had been to lunch at Saffrons and had time to spare and wandered in here. This museum is run by volunteers and is full of interest. I was watching a film of the history of Worcester which was... More

Dear Hilary Thank you for such a lovely review! Everyone at Tudor House is pleased you enjoyed your visit so much. Yes, unfortunately the film is an old one, but we feel it gives an insight into how the much the city has changed and developed in a relatively short space of time. Thank you also for the donation mention!... More

This is by far one of my most favourite places to visit in Worcester for a cuppa and toasted tea cake. The staff are all volunteers, the prices are ridiculously low and its a great place to explore the local bygone history.

I visited this museum with my primary school many years ago & always remembered it fondly, but couldn't remember where it was in the city. A couple of years ago, at the Victorian Christmas fayre, I found it. I proceeded to bring my nephew in the next summer, who loved it. Then his school has visited and he wants to... More

There is so much to see, you think it's quite small when you first walk in and then, as you walk around and it opens up, you go upstairs and it just gets better and better until finally you're right at the the top..and wow...fantastic...go back downstairs for one final surprise...the garden...so lovely...a fitting legacy from the lovely very talented...

Dear Jenn Thank you for your review, but I think you may have confused us with Tudor House in Upton upon Severn - there are many similarities! That is a fascinating museum: several years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Lavender, who was dedicated to keeping it open for the benefit of the town. I'm glad you enjoyed your... More

This museum is a great piece of history all the way up to WWII. The nice part is the area around the museum is protected from development, so the street looks very close to what it was in the 1900's.

If you have visited Greyfriars, walk along the road to find out more about Worcester's industrial and hidden history. Informative and please leave a donation to keep this museum open
