Tudor House Heritage Centre


Friar Street,


Situated on one of the most historic streets in Worcester this16th century timber framed building brings a vanished Worcester back to life. Inside the house you can see the original wattle and daub of the walls and trace 500 year old carpenter’s marks on some of the timber joints.

Inside the rooms are not crowded with furniture but open for you to see. A few choice exhibits (most of which you can touch as well as look at) are complemented by fascinating interpretations of the history of this ancient city.

You can follow the house’s fascinating history from its origins as separate weaver’s cottagers to the Cross Keys Tavern, Mr Cadbury’s Coffee House, a school clinic and World War II ARP Warden’s office and billeting centre. Worcester’s industrial heritage is shown in rare archive photographs and artefacts.

Especially for children there are games to play, a dressing up box and our own Tudor Rat trail to follow around the house.
