Paycocke's

Paycocke's

Details

A stunning Tudor merchant's house whose walls have more than a few stories to tell.

Stunning woodcarving and elaborate panelling made this wealthy merchant's house a medieval des res built to impress.

Built around 1500 for Thomas Paycocke, the house is a grand example of the wealth generated in East Anglia by the cloth trade in the 16th century.

Discover what happened to Thomas' house through hundreds of years of history as you piece together its timber framed secrets and the fascinating story of its riches to rags decline and Edwardian 20-year restoration.

Our volunteers have worked similar green-fingered miracles restoring our cottage garden, a hidden arts & crafts jem with surprising industrial roots.

Don't miss the nation's favourite pastime of drinking tea and finding crafty gifts in our garden room coffee shop.
