Anne of Cleves House
The oldest part of this lovely timber-framed house was built in the fifteenth century. Later it was given to Henry VIII’s fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, in her divorce settlement.
Parts are in period furnishings. Galleries tell the story of Lewes from fifteenth century to modern times, the role of local resident Tom Paine, the Lewes Bonfire traditions and the important Wealden iron industry. There are also displays of everyday domestic objects and children’s toys.
The enclosed garden gives a feeling of stepping back into an earlier age and will be the venue for a delightful Tudor Fair in October.Kids days out in Lewes in East Sussex
