Duke of Suffolk Chamber


We have 6 bedrooms available furnished with genuine Tudor and Stuart beds (albeit with the most modern memory foam mattresses for your comfort). Stays will include a range of activities depending on duration and desire; all include home made meals made from authentic Tudor recipes!




We have a calendar of activities for the year such as our famous Eastertide and Lammas & 12th Night feasts. Attendance at these can be specifically booked or they can be integrated into a stay with us.


The Tudor and 17th Century Experience is an exclusive Tudor and 17th Century themed immersion history retreat to the south of Tudor Norwich in Norfolk. We are based in this stunning original Tudor manor house dating from 1514 to enable our guests to really absorb the flavours of life in Tudor England. It is our mission to make your time here as authentic as possible with every attention to detail, from home made food from authentic Tudor and Stuart era recipes to period entertainments. All furniture in the house is period correct from dining to sleeping. Feel free to walk around the beautiful Tudor inspired gardens, indulge in Tudor outdoor pursuits - perhaps even in Tudor costume!
