Event description
Join us at our free public open days to learn more about Peake's House and its rich history.

About this event

We are opening this building in association with Heritage Open Days.

Peake's House stands in the Dutch Quarter, which has retained its old street plan. Originally three cottages and with Colchester being a centre of the cloth trade, they probably belonged to weavers, the long mullioned windows designed to give light to the men at their looms.

The satisfying late Elizabethan interiors of a prosperous merchant’s house provide a particularly atmospheric existence within its walls - join us at these open days to learn more about Peake's House and the restoration by The Landmark Trust.

Demonstrators Hands on the Past will be joining us over the weekend to showcase weaving and dyeing processes.

Please note that your ticket allows you access to the building, there are no grounds/garden at this property so we'd ask that you arrive as close to your time slot as possible to minimise the number of guests in the area.

There will be no refreshments or toilet facilities available during these open days.
