Watch your step! And mind your head! I nearly lost a good share of mine, hitting the ceiling :(( The stairs are very steep; although the museum says it’s suitable for wheel-chairs, I do not know how they handle it. Forget high-heels, you may be...More

As the sign outside reads, this is a piece of Shakespeare's England in Medieval Moscow. Located just a few minutes walk from St Basil's and Red Square, it is fascinating - particularly for an English person - to contemplate that there were English traders (The...More

One of the interesting attractions along Ulitsa Varvaka is the Old English Court. This is a refurbished house given to English merchant and adventurer Richard Chancellor by Ivan the Terrible in 1553 in effort to foster better trade relations with England. After major restorations which...More

Does not expect the historical building - it's just a modern rebuilt house on a place where previous court stood. Later it was heavily changed and in 2000-x renovated. Only historical stairs remained. In general nice to see how the houses were build during that...More

Waste of time and money. In this building almost no English, and the things that are explained you can find in any guidebook. There was one kind lady would could speak English, but the rest not. NOT recommendable to visit. Better go to the Romanov...More

The old is only the building. Everything else is new. Very very small collection of old things. We've spend 15 minutes there, 200 rubles for entrance. Everything is white - new paint. Feeling that you're in new building with some vintage furniture. There are many...More

This building is a hidden gem in Russia! I learned a lot and everything was neatly set up. The only problem was it was quite hard to find the entrance but overall I absolutely loved my visit!

In a short distance from the Red Square. Was recently restored. You can have a look at it from the top of the street and take a nice photo.

We went there on a Tuesday just after 10:00 AM. The building had no signs or opening times, just a poster saying that it's an Old English Court. The security guard did not let us in, and when asked about the museum (when and if...More

Just an old building, representing architecture and a bit household of the past. Not far from Kremlin.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.
