Enjoy an insight into Tudor and Elizabethan life at Anne of Cleves House in Lewes.

This stunning timber-framed medieval house dates back to the 15th century. It was given to Anne of Cleves at the end of her short-lived marriage to Henry VIII – although she never lived there.

Take advantage of the selection of dressing up clothes to find your inner King or Queen and bring the historic surroundings to life.

Learn about Sussex life through a fascinating collection of historic domestic artefacts. Then stroll through the garden, which is inspired by a traditional Tudor planting scheme and includes herbs, shrubs and fruit trees appropriate to the Tudor period.
