The Landmark Trust is opening Peake's House  in association with Heritage Open Days. *Entry is free but your visit must be pre-booked via EventBrite*

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 on these free open days to learn more about this wonderful building, its history and its restoration.

Free Admission and leaflets on the building's history and an activity sheet for children will be available. Click here for location
