Ancient High House

"Four hundred years of history are waiting to be discovered within the walls of England's largest timber framed town house"  

Step inside and embark on a journey from Elizabethan days through the turbulent Civil War era to the more refined Edwardian period. With hands on activities, children's games and quizzes there's something for all the family, as well as an exciting range of events and workshops throughout the year. An interesting programme of displays by regional artists takes place in two gallery spaces and a changing history exhibition gives you the opportunity to view a range of artefacts not generally on public display. 

There is a school and group tour programme and occasional themed tours, talks and workshops to support the history exhibitions.

The ground floor shop offers a wide range of gifts, local crafts, souvenirs, traditional toys, local crafts and local history books. Visit Staffordshire Gifts http://www.staffordshiregifts.org.uk/categories/ancient-high-house.php to buy online.

Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 4pm. FREE admission, with the exception of some events and workshops.
