Tate House Offers Inside Out Tour This Summer

Tate House is a survivor. Fires. Wars. Pandemics. Experience stories of hope and hardship in a new way this summer.  

Tate House Museum in historic Stroudwater has cancelled its indoor tours this season due to the COVID pandemic. Instead, we will provide visitors an alternative way to experience the history of our properties. Starting on July 10th, we will offer a limited number of register-in-advance-onlytours led by experienced docents from the safety of outdoor areas. These “Inside/Out Tours” will focus on the history of the Mast Trade, the Tate family, and the Tate’s 1755 home while viewing the historic Tate House and Means House from our beautiful surrounding riverfront properties. Tours will last 30-45 minutes, include up to 6 people, and will require face coverings and social distancing. Visitors will learn about our historic garden and enjoy views of the Fore and Stroudwater Rivers while imagining the surrounding Stroudwater Village two and half centuries earlier.

Tours will be offered on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through August at 11:00 AM, 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM. Registration and payment is required in advance by calling 774-6177 or by emailing info@tatehouse.org. Cost is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors/students, and $5 for children 12 and under. Tours may be extended through Sept and Oct so check our website www.tatehouse.org and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TateHouseMuseum/ for updates, more information, and future programming.
