The Tower house was a family home for some 500 years and pupils will have an interactive guided tour around the rooms in the Tower to learn about what life was like then. From medieval building techniques, ancient toilets, studded doors and beds with curtains, take away worksheets will help pupils compare and contrast what life was like then with their own homes, showing the ways in which homes have changed.
