We enjoyed our visit, especially dressing into Tudor costumes and taking pictures. Lots of fun! We bought combined tickets for Margate museum and Tudor house. Volunteers do a very good job in both places, a big thank you from us!

One time a farmhouse that developed over time. Lots of Tudor features in the building, but not very much on display inside. On the edge of the newly fashonable old town and less than 200 yards from the Harbour. Free entry.

Wonderful authentic Tudor house, rescued from threatened demolition and beautifully restored. Run by volunteers, one of whom (Susan) gave us a fascinating and very knowledgable tour as we were there on a quiet morning. A must for Margate visitors

We unfortunately only got to see wit from the outside as it was not open to view the interior on the day we went but it is a gorgeous piece of authentic Tudor architecture.

Absolutely stunning building with loads of history from the 16th century through the years to a wonderfully knowledgeable pair of volunteers at the desk to brief on entry. They even have a whole bunch of period costumes upstairs for dressing up and obligatory being silly...More
