At Anne of Cleves House you can explore how the Tudors and Elizabethans lived, worked and relaxed at home.

Anne of Cleves House formed part of Anne’s annulment settlement from Henry VIII in 1540.

The House is a wonderful example of a late Medieval timber-framed building. The earliest parts date from the
late 1400s, and there were further additions up until the 17th century.

Today you can catch the atmosphere of how people lived during Tudor and Elizabethan times in the kitchen, bedroom and parlour, which have authentic domestic furnishings.The house also contains the Museum of Lewes History and the Wealden Iron Gallery, illustrating this local industry.The pretty gardens behind are inspired by Tudor planting schemes and contain a range of traditional plants including a medlar tree. The café and Tudor tea garden have separate access to the museum which allows non-museum visitors to come and enjoy delicious homemade food and drinks in the beautiful setting of the museum and tea garden. The café menu is on the website.
