The Elizabethan House is a historic building located on South Quay in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. I

The house, a merchant’s house, was built around 1596 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1558-1603). It has been preserved and restored to display the domestic life and conditions of the era it was constructed in, namely the Elizabethan era, which is why it’s called the Elizabethan House.

The house exhibits the architecture and interior design of its time, featuring a variety of historical items and furniture. The museum’s collection includes items from the 16th century through to the Victorian era, providing a comprehensive view of the changes in domestic life over these periods. It’s designed to give visitors an immersive experience of history, with rooms such as a Victorian kitchen and a Georgian dining room.

The Elizabethan House is also significant because of its association with the events surrounding the English Civil War. It’s believed that a secret meeting was held here by local royalists plotting against Oliver Cromwell.
