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.

Well worth a visit to experience the changes of use of old building over the centuries and changing times. Full of character and interesting facts. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. Old fashioned tea room in keeping with the whole experience.

A totally unplanned visit we were walking down Friar Street when we came across the Tudor House. One of Worcester's oldest buildings the rooms all reflect a different era from the buildings past including pub (of dubious repute), weavers and WW2 wardens. Entry is free although contributions are encouraged and well worth the suggested £2.

Happened upon the Tudor House whilst window shopping in Worcester. Very knowledgable volunteers. An eclectic mix of rooms and exhibits both inside and out including exhibits from Elizabethan times right up to World War 2. Free entry but good to give a donation. We were there for about 30 minutes but will definitely go back for a more thorough examination.... More

Once again the National Trust have had to bend their usual rigid and rather sterile approach to preservation - this time by the nature of the bequest. Take the guided tour to get a real feel for the eccentric lives of this buildings 20th century Guardian Angles

I'm really sorry, but you have left a review for The Greyfriars on our Tudor House page. Please could you alter it as the houses are very different - but equally lovely! I'm glad you had a good visit to Worcester. More

This is a lovely small museum that is run by volunteers. Admission is free but you have the ability to donate something to support the museum. Very interesting well presented displays. This house is over 500 years old and you get the chance to see how the Tudor built their structures. No disabled friendly I am afraid as the house... More
