If only walls could talk! A “Behind the Scenes” Tour of three Tudor houses


Be one of the first to explore this building which was closed for several years! Walk on the squeaky floorboards and smell the history!

Gloucester Civic Trust have taken over this amazing and unique row of three Tudor houses from the City Council and want to bring life back into the buildings and keep them safe for future generations.

Guided Tours are now available and tell the stories of the buildings themselves and the people who owned them or worked or lived in them during the last 600 years. The Tour Guides will be dressed in costume, representing a real person connected to the building.

The Tour takes about 90 minutes and costs £7 for adults, £3 for children under 16. There is a limit of 10 people on each tour.

Access to the first and second floors is via staircases. There is no lift access. This means the tour is unsuitable for pushchairs, users of wheelchairs and those with limited mobility.

The Café will be open so please come a bit early and support our efforts to keep these beautiful buildings open by buying a cup of tea or coffee before the Tour as the Introduction to the Tour usually starts here.
