A delightful way to catch up on the history of this quarter of the town. The children will love the introduction in the hall if a bit overlong. My favourite part of this house is the garden full of herbs and plants grown in the Tudor period. The cafe spills into the garden patio where you can sit over your... More

Interesting to see how the wealthier lived in earlier times. Also had some museum artifacts recovered from a Viking discovery.

A very old house but no information of how life was in Tutor times only random displays about the wooden beams or the flooring! The initial video promised so much more and then there is an empty house to walk around. Very disappointing and we were not alone - an elderly American couple seemed totally astounded that there was so... More

We enjoyed this house. Very well kept and a few interactive items that kept a teenager content and enough facts that didnt bore. Id visit again when they have an event on.

The place was located just a couple of blocks away from our hotel. And so my wife and I decided to pay it a visit and we're glad we did. We used audio headsets for a self-guided tour and that worked well. The House was interesting. It gave us a good idea of what it might be like to have... More

This small modern annex to the museum opens on to their lovely garden - they serve adequate food and drink in unique surroundings - ok the choice may be a bit limited but its all well presented and the prices are sensible - pity its closed on mondays and, thanks to central government cuts, during the week the museum closes...

Tudor House is a fascinating museum in the heart of Southampton. It's quite a surprising place, as it gives you a really intimate, personal experience of another time. The museum is really nicely planned out and executed, right from the starting presentation that gives you a broad working overview of the house and its history, through the many small details...
