Mr Straw's House
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Visitors can listen to recorded memories of people who knew the Straw family during their time here. Behind the house is an attractive garden so typical of suburban houses of this period. Mr Straw was a local grocer, and his fairly unusual family threw nothing away in their over 60 years residence in the house. See family letters, photos, and Victorian era furniture exactly as the family left them.
Please note: Admission is by timed ticket only, and pre-booking is essential. Please see National Trust website for details.
