Free Open Day + Display of Coventry Memorabilia

Visit The Weaver’s House and garden for a free Open Day when we will be joined by Coventry resident Scott Duffin who will bring a selection of Coventrian objects. Scott has a passion for the city and its history. He has amassed a considerable ‘Coventry Collection’ of all kinds of items and paraphernalia relating to Coventry.

Scott’s Coventry treasures will be on show on the upper floor of the Visitor Centre at 122 Upper Spon Street. Please note the stairs to the upper floor are steep.

Experience how John Croke, a Coventry narrow-loom weaver and his family would have lived and worked in the 1540s. The restored historic building includes a full-size replica of a medieval loom in the upstairs ‘solar’ room. Explore the working medieval garden showing the plants that would have been grown for food, flavouring, medicine and household use.

Tea, coffee and homemade cakes are served on Open Days.
Please note the solar room containing the loom is accessed by ladder.
Open from 10am until 4pm.
Suggested last entry time 3.30pm.
Entry is free, donations are very welcome.
