The Ancient High House is one of the finest Tudor buildings in the country. Once dominating the skyline of Stafford, it is the largest remaining timber-framed town house in England.
Royalty was welcomed to the house in 1642 when King Charles I stayed there en route to Shrewsbury, and the building retains an extensive collection of period furniture and architectural features. It is also the home of the Staffordshire Yeomanry Museum.
