This is another gem from the National Trust. It is in the heart of Worcester City Centre and gives an insight into how a tradesman may well well have lived hundreds of years ago. The tour was informative and interesting. It is well worth signing up for. The wealth of knowledge and understanding the people who show you around is first rate. The gardens a very pleasant with space to have a picnic and plants to enjoy. The tea rooms are well run and offer the drinks and cakes that many enjoy. The toilets are spotless. It is well worth a visit.
Really interesting house in Worcester centre. Staff and guides really knowledgeable and welcoming. We learnt a lot about the families who lived there and how the house had been developed by them. Coffee and food very good. Lovely garden. We will go again I'm sure.
