If you want effortless entertainment, then the Tudor Merchant's House isn't for you; 10-15 minutes and you'll leave disappointed and feeling the £5.25 entrance fee wasn't money well spent. However, for those genuinely interested in history - and I'm a latecomer to that category -...More

Visited the Tudor house during a day trip to Tenby. Very friendly guides eager to give information and assist. National Trust property, very informative fun visit.

An excellent example of tudor life. Housed over three floors, there is plenty to see and informative guides are on hand to answer any questions.
