We went on a cold wet Sunday afternoon with our 8 year old son who is about to start learning about the tudors at school so this was an ideal place to go . 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...

I routinely visit the Tudor House just for a coffee in their café as I can look out over the lovely garden and it is a lovely peaceful place away from the bustle and noise of the shoppers.. I have taken my Grandchildren there on several occasions and they love the creakiness and haphazardness of the building which is so... More

We decided to stop for a coffee and a snack while shopping and looked for somewhere different to the high street chains. I remembered the advertising for the Tea Rooms at Tudor House so decided to give it a try. I so wish we had gone to Costa or Starbucks! This tea rooms is a horrid small square prefab with... More

The Tudor house museum used to be the jewel in the crown of Southampton's historical attractions; a Tudor Merchant's house that had evolved through the ages housing a fascinating collection of Southampton related exhibits that would keep visitors fascinated all day. Since it needed some major structural work the vandals in charge have used that as an opportunity to turn... More

It's a great looking building and a very interesting insight into the old world. It can get busy with school groups so perhaps pick a weekend to look around. The garden and old walls out the back are a great hidden gem. They do weddings here and I can see why you would want it here as it makes for... More

Very good wheelchair access for a historical building, only two places I couldn't go. If you have a HUGE scooter you won't manage the lift. But big welcome for me, my children, my assistance dog. The video bit is normally a boring start but not here, really cool lighting effects. Lots of things to look at and not too much... More
