The Elizabethan house museum is a charming merchants house located on the quayside in Great Yarmouthand was built around 1596. There have been many changes to the house over the years, these changes were made by many of its wealthy inhabitants. Wood panelled rooms, richly decorated ceilings and the imposing stairway all help to tell the story of the Elizabethan House.
The house is famous for its connections with Oliver Cromwell who is said to have frequently visited his friend, John Carter, a prominent Yarmouth merchant who purchased the house from Benjamin Cowper in 1635.
The building became a regular meeting place for parliamentarians during the civil war and it is said this is where the fate of Charles I was decided in 1648. From 1667 some 14 different families lived in the house. In 1870, it was bought by the Aldred family and remained in their possession until the eldest daughter Mary Aldred bequeathed it to the National Trust.
