Definitely worth a visit, this pre-tudor building is so quirky with lopsided floors and rickety (but safe) stairs. The museum is interesting and the staff welcoming and knowledgeable.

We did not actually go into the building itself as it is only open 1-4pm and we were out touring around at that time. However, you do not need to go inside the building to get a feel for it! The exterior is quite amazing...More

This is an interesting building filled with things that bear no resemblance to the description. There is also a note to say that there is nothing to say king John was ever there !

This building is worth a stop if you are nearby or passing but not a special visit. The building is fascinating and contains a little local museum. The museum is quirky, an eclectic mix of items. The staff are very helpful and enthusiastic.

Came here on the way back from somewhere else but it was certainly worth it! A little museum of three floors with such a wonderful array of artefacts. The staff volunteers were extremely friendly and obviously had a good local and historical knowledge. Great visit!!!
