YE OLDE TUDOR WORLD
AN INTERACIVE MUSEUM
This award winning museum is situated right in the heart of the historic town of Stratford upon Avon within a Grade 2* listed historic building.
World is an unusual small independent museum set within a Tudor property in the
heart of Stratford upon Avon. The only museum in the country devoted to the Tudors, it does not have artefacts or period furniture
but instead recreates different areas of Tudor life, interweaved with stories
of the building’s rich history (on a site that dates back to the birth of the
Town in the 12th century) and the history of Stratford itself. The
building itself is very atmospheric and accessed via the only remaining cobbled
street in Stratford.
Whilst the museum may not appeal to purest, it does offer Tudor lovers a slice of different areas of Tudor life and a heady atmosphere of the time.
"An interesting and scary insight into Tudor history"
