Tenby and The Tudor Merchant’s House (Wales)

Eat your heart out Dennis Severs, the National Trust have done good with the Tudor Merchants house and used reproduction furniture, real fires and REAL FOOD to make an interactive experience where furniture can be sat on and exhibits used.

Tenby is also rather pretty with its pastel facades and seaside location.  A good stop off point for lunch.

After wandering around the town we went to the Tudor Merchant’s House, dated from the early 1500s and oft derelict over the years.

Comprising a shop at the front (from which the occupant would also have sold goods), a rear kitchen with working real fire, internal stairs replacing what would originally only have been external stairs, a first floor living room and upper floor with bedroom, this house is a fun 15 minute pit stop.

When visited: April 2012
