“Friendly, pretty garden for a light meal”

Anne of Cleves House
Ranked #8 of 30 things to do in Lewes
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 September 2018

We met friends here recently and loved sitting in this pretty, quiet English garden. The food was good too, with a few unusual options that made it stand out from a regular museum tea room. Our only issue was that the staff were a bit distracted and the server didn't really have a clue about what was on the menu.

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. Stained glass window panes of showing the history of various Kings are spectacular. Outside, iron forging works from the local are displayed. Allow a few hours, visit Lewes Castle (built 1069 AD) and get discounted entry to this house. Then walk downhill 15-20 minutes (take a map!).

Enjoyed our visit here, definitely a good history lesson and lots of other little rooms full of interesting memorabilia. Lovely little cafe too, had a lovely jacket potato but they ran out after serving us even though we ate at 12:30. Plenty of people visiting but not overly crowded. Wedding being held in one of the rooms and garden so unable to access all areas. If you gift aid you get a yearly ticket for you and a friend. Parking not easy as area mostly for permit holders but did find a parking meter only a 5 minute walk away and very reasonably priced.

The house was moderately interesting, but many people complained the name is misleading. The iron works housed I side are very impressive.
