Behind the Scenes Tours of the Folk of Gloucester.

A “Behind the Scenes” Tour of three Tudor houses “If only Walls could Talk”.

Take a trip back in time guided by the colourful characters who lived and worked in this row of Tudor houses. Immerse yourself in fascinating facts and gory stories while you explore the many rooms with a serving maid, or an undertaker, a Puritan Mayor or other larger than life characters from the past 600 years. The Tour Guides will be dressed in costume, representing a real person connected to the building.

Be one of the first to explore these houses which were 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.

You will also hear about our plans as this will no longer be a museum but an exhibition and events space and a centre for the local community.

Please note that the Tour takes about 90 minutes. There are many steps and staircases so this tour is not suitable for people 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.
