Welcome to the Revolution House
This pretty thatched cottage in the village of Old Whittington hides a secret – it was part of a plot to overthrow a king.
Revolution House will be opening for Christmas from Thursday 9 to Friday 24 December with our outdoor carol concert on 9 December. We look forward to welcoming you to Christmas at Revolution House.
Before visiting Revolution House please take a look at the COVID-19 safety measures we have put in place to make sure that you have a safe and enjoyable visit.
In 1688, three local noblemen – the Earl of Devonshire, the Earl of Danby and Mr John D'Arcy – met at Whittington disguised as a hunting party, to begin planning their part in the overthrow of James II. A rainstorm sent them seeking shelter at the Cock and Pynot alehouse.
Now known as Revolution House, it is a free public museum.
There is a display of 17th century furniture, a video on the Revolution of 1688 and a programme of special events through the summer.
