Whether you are visiting us on an Open Day or for a group tour, your visit will start in the Activity Centre directly next door to The Weaver’s House itself.
The Weaver’s House has been restored to show how it would have looked in 1540. This shows how John Croke, a Coventry narrow-loom weaver and his family would have lived and worked. You can also see a replica of the loom that he would have used. The Weaver’s House is a two storey building, the upper floor containing the loom is accessed by a ladder.
At the back of the Weaver’s House is a medieval garden showing the plants that would have been grown for food, flavouring, medicine and household use.
Your visit will include a tour of the The Weaver’s House and Garden (weather permitting).
Please note that we do not have a fully catered café on site but we are just a few minutes walk into the city centre. On Open Days we serve tea, coffee and cake from our kitchen.
