Harvard House

Harvard House is an elegant example of an Elizabethan town house, a short distance from Nashs House and New Place. It was once home to Katherine Rogers, mother of John Harvard, the founder of Harvard University, USA. Here the visitor can explore the extensive range of British pewter including Roman chargers and 16th Century pilgrim badges and see the story of pewter brought alive with stunning examples from Roman times to the present day. Let your children try their hands at the decorative pewter craft of repousse and take a virtual reality tour and become a pewter detective with our fun interactive games.
