What is the history of Anne of Cleves House Museum to the present day?
Henry VIII and his wives have fascinated the British for generations so it's little wonder that Anne of Cleves' House, tucked away in rural Sussex, is such a popular visitor attraction. Anne was given the house in 1541 as part of her divorce settlement from the king and this timber-framed Wealdon hall-house now has a large collection of interesting local artefacts. The house's interior (which by the way wouldn't look out of place today on a chic boutique hotel website), with its timber beams and gorgeous furniture, is a wonderful sight and a visit leaves you with a much clearer sense of how the Tudors lived from day to day – it's a super resource for children learning about Henry and his reign at school (and there are plenty of workshops designed for schoolchildren too).
