The Jacobean House: The Highs and Lows of a Derby Townhouse

The Jacobean House was a house of firsts: the first brick building in Derby and the first place to have seen tea consumed in the town. However, it’s a miracle survivor because of the two times it was nearly destroyed and its periods of abandonment. This exhibition hopes to create discussion about the price of the demolition of historical buildings in the name of future progress.

Accessibility restrictions to upper floors. If you have special access requirements, please contact us before visiting: 01332 641901 or email info@derbymuseums.org.
