Whether you're interested in history generally, or just in the local history of Southampton, the Tudor House Museum and Garden is well worth a visit, and good value for the entry fee. It's amazing to think that not so long ago, this was where Southampton water front once stood. There's a fun and interesting introductory audio visual presentation, as well... More

The Tudor House and Garden is essentially a few houses that have accidentally survived through the ages. It is essentially 500 years of English architecture compressed into one place. The museum is not very large, but the same goes for the entrance fee. I enjoyed it, but might not be for everyone.

It's one of those places I've been meaning to visit for ages, and finally got around to it on a rainy August day! There was far more to the place than I realised, making it well worth a visit. The introductory show was great, and the (free) audio tour added a very good additional dimension. We took up the offer... More

Only became aware of this via a recent Groupon deal - bearing in mind we live near Southampton, this obviously shows that their marketing efforts could be increased. Really worth a visit - started off with an audio show in the banqueting hall, aimed at kids but still fun for the grown-ups. Free audio guides are available for adults and... More

Very much enjoyed the house and the grounds. Good displays and explanations. Also ate a nice, quick lunch in the café. This house is the main reason I came to Southampton, and I was not disappointed. Thank goodness there are people who preserve places like this.

We went here with my son, and mother. Me and my husband love history so it was lovely, the show at the beginning is entertaining and suitable for children. Its rich in history the only downside was not every part is wheelchair accessible but alot is.

The Tudor House was a bit hit with the whole family. There is a lot of interactive elements, including computerised stations, dressing up and experts in full tudor dress/character throughout the house...and a fab new tea room it has to be said! Thoroughly enjoyable and reasonably priced.

We visited with two teenagers and a nine year old, and all of us enjoyed ourselves. There was a fab "show" in the banqueting hall at the start of our visit, mainly an audio and light show giving a little info about the house from the perspective of the ghosts who once lived there ~ a little spooky for very...

The exhibits are well laid out around the house, and has a variety of interesting artefacts and objects on display. The garden is lovely to walk around, and well worth a visit - particularly in spring/summer. The cafe is very nice too. The audio/visual display in the main hall is a little odd, but I'm sure is very entertaining to... More

Had a Groupon voucher to visit this place a while back. I absolutely loved it! Even without the voucher it was well worth the money! Very informative for both children and adults (count me as both!) The tea room was lovely . We visited in winter and it was a perfect finish to a lovely afternoon!
