The love story (or scandalous elopement) of Bessie Surtees and John Scott (a coal merchant’s son who was later Lord Chancellor of England) is legendary. This beautiful 17th century Tudor House near Newcastle’s Quayside is where that story started, when Bessie climbed out of her window to be with John. The house is a good place to learn the story, and also glimpse the lifestyle of the people those times. The furniture and the interior décor have been preserved as they used to be, and are quite lavish.
