English Tourist Board Approved Attraction

The Priest House

The 15th century Priest House is not a grand building, although it was seized by Henry VIII and belonged to Thomas Cromwell, Anne of Cleves, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth. In the 16th century, chimneys and a new stone roof were added, creating a substantial Yeoman farmers’ house and it has changed remarkable little since, making it a rare survivor. Opened as a museum in 1908, it contains a large, eclectic collection of once common but now rare, everyday items. Nowhere else will you find a bed wagon, a salamander and a handkerchief signed by suffragettes in Holloway Prison.
