From Our Editors

Situated in Lewes, the Anne of Cleves House Museum is a restored historical building that formed part of Queen Anne's annulment settlement from King Henry VIII in 1541. Now serving as a museum, the house lets the guests explore how the Tudors and the Elizabethans lived, worked and spent their free time. Those willing to find out some more about the history of this picturesque location can combine their visit to the house with an entry to the Lewes Castle.

Excellent adventure, a beautiful house, you can get dressed up and enjoy tea in the garden. Very educational and a lot of fun for young and old! Kids will love it!

Very let down I'm afraid by tasteless scones. When asked cafe staff said they do not add sugar. If wanting to reduce sugar content ( not labelled as such) you can replace by an alternative. I expected my friends scone to be replaced but it was not offered sadly. We were looking forward to our afternoon tea together.

Lovely old house with lots of interesting nooks and crannies. It was a bit disappointing to discover that Anne of Cleves never actually lived in the house but, having been given it by Henry VIII, rented it out. Nevertheless we enjoyed our visit (and our cup of tea and cake!) and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in history and historical houses.
