Peakes House Heritage Open Days
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* As there are no grounds at this property we would ask that you arrive as close to your entry time as possible.
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.
