Elizabethan House Restoration

As part of Plymouth's Mayflower 400 commemorations our historic Elizabethan House on the Barbican is being restored and re-interpreted. The project is supported by Plymouth City Council, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, the Coastal Revival Fund and The Pilgrim Trust.

The house has a fascinating history dating back to the late 1500’s/early 1600’s when Plymouth was a bustling Elizabethan port.

Once essential restoration work has been undertaken we will be developing new interpretation for the house, creating an immersive experience that will enable local residents and visitors to Plymouth to fully understand its history. Here are a couple of short videos about the investigation work that has been carried out on the house to help inform the restoration.
