Waiting for bus in the rain. liked everything else. The Abbey had a video to view. and staff too answer questions. Found the display and commentaries about spy training detail and interesting. The shop had variety of goods. Bought some model cars. Food available OK. Burleigh House interesting, the pride and arrogance of the present owners came across loud and... More

I visited the Tudor House back in 2012/2013 and was less than impressed HOWEVER my visit today has changed that completely. The entrance cost is modest, with entry to the cafe free if that is your only reason for visiting. The staff are helpful and friendly and don't force information on you, which is a welcome change in my book.... More

To be honest I preferred the old Tudor House but the refurbished one is great for children as there are lessons for groups of schoolchildren so consequently can get a tad noisy. Fabulous old building though with bags of history.

I really enjoyed visiting the Tudor House. We had a guided tour of the attic & cellar which was very interesting. We had afternoon tea in the cafe which was good

Fantastic looks small but is actually very big with lots to see. Even things for kids to do which is awesome. Loved the opening show so watch it for sure and then take ur time around looking at Tudor history. My kids and I loved it. Well worth the visit!!!

We found this Tudor house be quite interesting and might have missed it if I hadn't found it on the TA things to do in Southampton. It was a wonderful look back at a piece of history and well worth the visit.

I think I had unwarranted expectations when visiting this museum. I expected simply a Tudor House, and just that. I missed the point that this was a museum! The house had been, more or less, stripped bare and odd exhibits placed in the rooms. There was nothing that was displayed that I found particularly interesting because they were sparse and... More
