Spent an hour viewing this wealthy merchants house once owned but never visited by Anne of Cleves. The upper storey is all open so you can see the timber construction of the roof and walls. Note the airing cupboard behind the bed. Downstairs there is...More

We purchased tickets for this attraction as a package with Lewes Castle from Groupon. Best way to do it as much cheaper. Unfortunately a wedding was being held here which restricted our visit. The building is of historic interest and worth a visit. There are...More

Have spent the day at Anne of Cleves House today for a photo shoot. The staff there bent over backwards to help. Wonderful place full of character and an amazing backdrop for our photo shoot. Thank you Anne of Cleves House.

This is a beautiful and charming place. A beautifully preserved house with lots to explore. It has a wonderful Tudor garden in which to relax and a very interesting museum. Lots for the children to dress up in too! A real gem.

The outside gives some idea of what lays within. This wooden structure was gifted to Anne by King Henry as a divorce settlement in 1541. Inside, the ceilings show how the design and building skills were so brilliant. All rooms are impeccably furnished and decorated....More
