Took my 6 year old grand daughter as she is learning about it at school and asked if we could visit. I thought the entry price was quite reasonable being as its Southampton Council and they always bleed you dry...... We went on a Sunday afternoon and were the only people there for the whole of our visit which lasted... More

Fantastic old building well looked after and full of interesting things. The Elizabethan garden is well worth a look but why oh why did they put up an awful modern cafe facing it. Like another act of council vandalism.

This is preserved half-timbered house is a must-see museum. If you haven't enough time just see the outside and the gift shop - they are wonderful. The museum which has varied exhibitions is the only part you pay for, so it's the luck of the draw as to what is on, but it is really worth seeing. There is a... More

Located in the middle of the old town, not far from High Street, you will find this interesting historical building. It has survived many centuries, rebuilding, the war, different times, and was made into a museum last century, The building is rather stripped of furniture and decoration. The interior has simple plackets and interactive panels. The audioguides are quite good... More

As we went in we spoke to two gentlemen behind the counter who were happy to serve and very friendly. They provide audio guides for free which is nice, but they didn't work so well for us. The first part of the tour is a spectacular guide to the house with special effects, great narration, and in our opinion was... More

The house is very interesting and fun for kids we enjoyed finding the medieval drawings etched onto one of the walls, quite incredible to think they... More

My 3 daughters (twins of 12 and a third of 7) and I came to visit as my youngest daughter is doing a project on Tudor houses at school. We found the welcome warm, unlike the weather outside, and the house itself had a number of activities which entertained all 3 children, plus dad!. My daughters were particularly interested by...
