We loved this ancient tudor house. A real gem, but it appears that Margate doesn't appreciate what it has. They are struggling to keep it open even with volunteers. Come on Margate it is a treasure.

Worth visiting especially when combining with joint ticket to Margate Museum. Watch your head as Beams are low for tall people.

It's small and you can get round quite quickly, but they have some fun costumes to try on and some interesting details into the past. Nice little garden too

Due to a mix up concerning opening hours we only had about a 20 minute visit, however the volunteer staff were excellent making our brief stay interesting and entertaining. Some very interesting history attached to this building. Well worth a visit.

Fun little side trip. Volunteers really friendly and helpful, and great fun to do "dress up" in the old style costumes. A small museum but well worth a visit

The Tudor House takes you back to life many centuries ago. Everything is authentic within the house and you can imagine a family living there. It is well worth a visit although the uppe rooms are accessed by a narrow stairway which proved difficult for...More

We really enjoyed our visit! The staff were lovely and so friendly and the dress up costumes were great fun. Interesting history to the house too. Definitely worth a visit for the small cover charge

I love this house, i live in margate but visit it regularly with guests, friends and family. My grandchildren love it here and the history behind it. The children loved the dressing up and i especially like the upstairs with its nooks and crannys.
