Have been meaning to visit the Tudor House for ages. The house itself has lots of history dating back hundreds of years. There is a lovely cafe looking out onto the gardens. I used the audio guide which you don't pay extra for. Takes a couple of hours to go around properly. Staff are very welcoming and helpful.

I love social history and i need to be reminded about how Southampton was when it was a walled City.

Nothing has changed in the 50 years I was last here............except it is better! Obviously a lot more restoration and interactive things for children to do. A not to be missed visit to see a genuine Tudor house when a lot of the more "modern" structures have disappeared and been replaced in the area. A pint in the nearby Wellington... More

At £4 entry it is very easy to visit. Agree with earlier comments about the beginning and the odd audio-visual presentation being a bit out of keeping with the rest of the house. Good selection of displays in the rooms, though the boards in the garden could do with a clean up - lots of bird poo, leaf litter and... More

The strange AV presentation is a bit disconcerting, but after that it is interesting inside, especially the explanation of what the view down to the docks would have been, and the mercantile history of the area. The gardens have some interesting displays, too. A good cafe for tea and cakes.

Started with a light lunch in the cafe and watched a wedding have their photo's taken in the gardens. Surprised the Groom and best man were wearing jeans !!! Not in keeping with jacket,waistcoat and button hole ! All other guests dressed to the nines !

Called in while walking in Southampton, the waitress was very friendly but the menu was very limited and I ended up just having a pot of tea.

This is very nice place, a lot of things to see, very good service. I think the garden would be nicer in the summertime.

It is just a amazing place to visit i think. If you live your whole life in the asian countries, you will like the scenery of what you saw. But you have to choice the right time. Because of the weather situation, It is such a place we should visit on sunny day.

I came here with barely any expectations and it turned out to be a good experience! The place is small, it must be said but it has a substantial amount of interesting things to keep you interested. Maybe it is not worth its price but if you are on holiday in Southampton and would like to kill a couple of... More
