Tudor House & Garden
You can book your tickets in advance online, or purchase tickets on arrival (subject to availability)
Southampton’s most important historic building, Tudor House reveals over 800 years of history in one fascinating location at the heart of the Old Town. The 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. Tudor House gives a unique and atmospheric insight into the lives and times of both its residents through the years, and of Southampton itself. It appeals to visitors of all ages and interests, who find the family-friendly activities, interactive technology and fascinating displays a winning combination.
Our museum is able to operate thanks to the generous efforts of our fantastic volunteers.

Currently situated around the House and Garden are four new sculptures, created by Hampshire artist Jacqueline Rolls as part of an Arts Council funded artist residency at Tudor House & Garden. They have been created from different types of willow and have been inspired by the history of Tudor House and some of the objects on display.
