About Tudor House and Garden

The Tudor House and Garden in Southampton is a restored 15th century historic home which now operates as a museum.

Though previous structures existed on the site, the existing Tudor House and Garden that is seen today traces its roots back to around 1495AD, when Sir John Dawtry, an important local official, had the building constructed from those houses which previously stood here.

Recently restored, today the Tudor House and Garden is now one of Southampton’s most important historic buildings. As well as the house itself visitors can explore the museum within which contains a number of displays and artefacts covering hundreds of years of history and there is also access to King Johns Palace, a 12th century Norman town house..
