Local from Bournemouth

A really impressive restoration of this 14th-century structure. Mind your head if you're above 6ft though, people were a lot smaller back in the medieval period!

First to Review

This thirteenth century house was built by merchant, John Fortin, in 1290 and was used both commercially and domestically over the centuries. It wasn't until World War II, when it was hit by a bomb, that its medieval core was revealed. Today, visitors can roam through the small house, which has been restored, and step back in time to another era. Although interesting, I felt the entrance fee was a little expensive considering the size of the house and items on display - probably only worthwhile for hardcore history enthusiasts.
