Peterborough Museum is built on the site of a Tudor mansion, Neville Place, built by Sir Humphrey Orme, a courtier to King Henry VIII. Part of this original building is visible today down in the museum’s vaults. We offer a half day visit.
Dress like a Tudor
Get up close to some of our Tudor portraits and, through questioning and close observation, discover what these portraits tell us about the sitters and the Tudors.
Meet a Tudor Barber Surgeon
The Tudor period was a time of very nasty diseases and even nastier cures. Travel back to 1574 learn how your own Tudor ailment might have been cured. Each class will take a pomander back to school and may even be able to use the museum's 'Medicine through Time' garden to collect the necessary herbs.
Discover Tudor Peterborough (optional extra if you would like to extend your stay)
