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.

  • Wonderful building. So much history and well presented. Gardens are well worth a visit, especially in the spring and summer. The cafe is good with a tasty selection of food and drinks.

  • This is just an amazing place to visit, we stayed here for hours. So much to see and hear about. Southampton most precious secret.

  • Disappointing. Expected more. It was interesting, but could have been so much more. Would not be rushing back. Nothing special.

  • Great spacious old Tudor type house tucked away in Southampton. Lovely gardens laid out in the old style to compliment the house.

  • Interesting historical experience with some crazily wonky floors and quirky artifacts! Check out the drink map! A little disappointed to see modern cabling clashing with the history. Chatted to lovely gentleman (guide/curator?) who told me so much more - fascinating!
