Black & White House Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Rooms on view include the kitchens, parlour, and dining all. The interiors are furnished with 17th-century furniture and decoration, much of it in English Oak. There are a series of rare wall paintings on view, plus a period four-poster bed and an unusual 17th-century baby-walker.
One particular highlight is a wonderfully carved fireplace surround in the dining hall. Children will enjoy dressing up in Jacobean costumes and playing historical replica puzzles.
The Black and White House also hosts regular Jacobean Evening events throughout the year, with family activities and themed events centred on the Jacobean period.
