Built in around 1595 for the wealthy Dorrington family, the ornate timber framed building is reputed to be the largest surviving timber framed town house in England from the Tudor period. In 1986 the house opened as a museum and now provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people who have lived there over the centuries. Visit the Civil War Room where King Charles 1st and Prince Rupert stayed during their brief visit to the town; view the Stuart Bedroom with its magnificent four poster bed; admire the elegant splendour of the Wallpaper Room with its Georgian displays; visit Mr. Marson in his Edwardian Shop; and observe the grand comfort of the Victorian Room.
