More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

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 user-friendly activities, interactive technology and fascinating displays a winning combination.

At Tudor House we aim to cater to all ages and abilities and are very happy to adapt our sessions to make them accessible and relevant to your school or group. We have the capacity to offer days of up to three classes of 33. Please click here for a draft itinerary and costing for one class. We offer:
