East London's Oldest House
A Tudor House for all to enjoy in the heart of London
Location: 2 - 4 Homerton High Street, Hackney, E9 6JQ
Description: And I quote... this is a Tudor house surviving in the heart of an East London community!
As well as being a simply fantastic place to soak up some historical heritage, this wonderful testament to our past has five centuries of family history, changing styles and tastes as well as an authentic Tudor kitchen with objects that you can touch and smell.
With lively events and activities for children and families and regular exhibitions of contemporary art by local artists, this is a London gem not to miss.
