Have you visited the Old House museum recently?

Next time you are in High Town take a look inside and see what it has to offer. It is set over 3 floors, built in 1621, the house has been used for many purposes over the years, starting life as a butcher's home and shop and finishing its commercial life in the hands of Lloyds Bank in the late 1920s. Since 1929 it has been a fascinating museum giving an insight into daily life in Jacobean times. It is furnished in period style with an internationally important collection of English Oak furniture and there are interesting pieces in every room.  It was recently used by the Frank Skinner on Demand show as a filming location.

There are hands-on activities for children including replica clothing for dressing up, and puzzles.

For those unable to climb the stairs, a virtual tour is situated on the fully-accessible ground floor. There are also Braille and tactile images for the blind and visually impaired.
