Anne of Cleves House and Museum

Anne of Cleves House formed part of Anne’s divorce settlement from Henry VIII in 1541. The House is an example of a late Medieval timber framed building. The earliest parts date from the late 1400’s, and there were further additions up until the 17th century. Today you can see how people lived during Tudor times in the kitchen, bedroom and parlour, which have authentic domestic furnishings.

The house also contains the Museum of Lewes History and the Wealden Iron Gallery which illustrates this local Tudor industry.

There is a garden behind the building which is inspired by Tudor planting schemes.
