Attraction Information

Tudor House and Garden

A little trip here gives a unique and atmospheric insight for kids into the lives and times of its residents through the years. Fun for imaginative sorts who will enjoy the opulence and alienness of the decor, and for older school goers who can also learn of Southampton itself. It appeals to visitors of all ages and interests, who find the family-friendly activities, bits of interactive technology and fascinating displays a winning combination!

Probably Southampton's most important historic building, the Tudor House reveals over 800 years of history in one fascinating microcosmic location at the heart of the Old Town, so it's perfect place to visit to get the feel of the area for the era (say that 5 times fast!). The handsome timber-framed building facing St Michael's Square was built in the late 15th Century, with King John's Palace, an adjacent Norman house accessible from Tudor House Garden, dating back a further 300 years, so architectural types will be content and interested here too! All in all it's educational and interesting but a little on the dry side so you may well want to hit the listings and plan a slightly more active follow up treat to reward them for paying attention!
