The Elizabethan period is immensely popular with tourists and nowhere more so than in Southampton, England at the Tudor House and Gardens located in Old Town where you can glimpse the medieval city walls and walk on bricks labeled with historical events from Southampton’s past. When you enter the house with the Elizabethan timbered effect, you head straight for the... More

Tudor house makes a good visit I the old town . The house has been restored fairly well but the highlights are the bits that have been conserved rather than restored. Outside the garden is attractive and linked directly into the impressive old town walls. Try to pick a day when the actors are present.

Very interesting house that needs a visit if you are in Southampton. Right in the heart of the Old Town it gives a good story of life in the city a couple of hundred years ago.

Lovely old tudor house made into a museum. Gardens are lovely too, in keeping with the age of the house. Staff are informative and helpful. Kids seem to enjoy the history lesson this house and contents provides. School trip arrived on the same day as our visit. Some stairs to top floor.

Brilliant, entertaining, informative. Lots to see and do with hands on experiences etc. Well laid out tour and a good souvenir shop with friendly staff. Stop by the cafe as well for a well earned cuppa after your tour.

Really lovely small Tudor House, well presented and great garden and Tera House. Ideal for a visit with friends off a Cruise Ship and to have lunch or tea. Worth the trouble!

Since re opening, I have been several times and find something I missed before. The virtual room display is great and good for kids. Coffee shop and herb garden good too. Always recommend it to people
