I enjoyed touring the Tudor House. The audio guide was very informative and allowed one to go at own pace.

We love this place, even my son, who normally races round museums with out looking at anything. He loves the audio guide and more often than not I had to wait for him! Nice cafe and shop ad well

We went here on a free open day. None of us had kids but still had fun with the dress up box :) would be a lovely place to bring children lots of fun with learning elements.

I have been a few times and it never loses its magic. I specially love the garden at the back. The scents take you back in time. It's a small building but it holds a big history

I didn't visit for the museum, so can't comment on that. But on an early spring day the garden was a fabulous oasis of colour and calm. Birds were drinking from the fountain, the peonies and irises were in bloom and the whole ambience was...More

If we don't want to look at the Tudor house itself can I just use the cafe and enjoy a walk in the garden at no entrance fee cost? as I now live local and want to entertain friends, is this OK?

Just read a report on the Tudor House. Would there be any translations in French? We are hoping to take some French family next week, would it be suitable? Regards Lynne

We do have a French translated leaflet which covers the visitor experience in a basic detail but the visuals of the house, imagery and architecture are an experience in themselves.
