Ancient High House

The Ancient Hight House is a 10-minute walk from Stafford station.

The Ancient High House is one of the finest Tudor buildings in the country. Once dominating the skyline of Stafford, it is the largest remaining timber framed town house in England. In 1986 the house opened as a museum and now provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people who have lived there over the centuries.

An exciting programme of exhibitions by regional artists takes place in two gallery spaces and a changing history exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to view a range of artefacts not generally on public display. With hands on activities, children’s games and quizzes there is something for all the family and throughout the year they also have an exciting range of events, activities and workshops that bring added colour and bustle to the rooms.
