Group visits and learning at Elizabethan House Museum

Three children dressed in costume

Whether visiting as an educational or recreational group there's plenty to interest your members at the National Trust's Elizabethan House Museum, Norfolk.

Information for groups

The Elizabethan House has something for everyone and groups are more than welcome. Debate the possible plot of Charles I's death or experience how a Victorian maid would run a kitchen and do the washing in the scullery. There’s enough to keep the whole group interested so you can enjoy a great day out with friends and family. Please call our Group Bookings Coordinator on 01493 743930 for more information.

A great place for school visits

The Elizabethan House was built in about 1596 and although bequeathed to the National Trust, it was a family home until 1949. Bring the magic of the Elizabethan House to life for your pupils via our fantastic school workshops! From Cinderella to Toys from the Past, our workshops use drama, costume, museum objects and more to create unforgettable learning experiences for your young learners. You can combine any of our workshops with a free visit to the Time & Tide Museum. For more information please telephone 01493 743944 or email

Team up with Time and Tide

A self-guided visit to the Elizabethan House Museum will take about 45 minutes. You can spend longer by booking one of our hands-on history workshops where you can meet historic characters and find out more about the people who lived here in the past. To make a day of it you could combine your visit with a trip to the nearby Time and Tide Museum where we have full facilities and a wealth of things to see and do.
