Almost a millennium old landmark which has gone through extensive amounts of change, The Tudor House is a Grade 1 listed building in old town. The earliest part of the building was built in 1180 and was a domestic dwelling. During the Tudor Period the house was a home for important members of Southampton society. It later became a merchant house and during the industrial revolution the area itself was one of Southampton worst slum areas. The house became a part of number of business like dyeworks, bookbinders, and bonnet makers. It was later purchased by William Sprangler a local philanthropist in 1886 and he later renovated it completely to turn it into a museum.
Due to increasing instability in its construction the house was closed from 2002 to 2011 and underwent extensive renovations. It opened in 2012 with the same price as it was during its first time which is 6 pence. The museum holds the records and posters from the olden times, has a dedicated library and reading space, a souvenir shop, a café, a conference room and a family room. It is also available for hire for weddings. Other than that it holds a number of interesting collections like glass panes, caskets, fairings, penny farthing and much more. The garden is designed with plants and herbs as it would have been during the Tudor period and is considered as an extension of the house.

A brilliant introduction to historic Southampton. The tour of the house is very well done and includes the story of its many ownerships and alterations as well as its amazing and sensitive restoration early in this millennium. The garden tour even includes part of a Norman castle.
I love the Tudor House Museum. It covers Southampton's history from the beginning of the development of the area. And it is interactive. After you have journey through the house, you can stop in their cafe and have afternoon tea and scones or sandwiches or light meals.
Fascinating house and history brought alive by sound show. Really enjoyed it.
Great place for cake and coffee in the cafe. Good weather is a must for sitting outside in the garden.
The Tudor house is a gem, if you visit Southampton, don't miss it it's literally full of history. I did a ghost hunt here overnight which was very interesting .
