A fantastic Tudor building, superbly restored with excellent displays. A Grade One listed building that is now a free entry museum, with much to explore and something for everyone. Open Sunday - Thursday for museum visitors. Available for meetings and weddings on Fridays and Saturdays.

Amazing place, well preserved and showing historical detail. Luckily on our visit there was someone you could ask about the history of the furniture and objects.
