we had a look round old Southampton and came across this house, We did not go but looked very interesting inside the old city walls away from the bustle of the city.

Another stop on our Jane Austen walk through Southampton, we didn't actually go in as it was closed but I am sure there is something to see.

It's a lovely little house. You can see the whole thing in less than 10 minutes, but it certainly is worth the visit and the ticket. There's a toilet too.

Awesome building taking you back in time, and letting you have a feel of the architecture of the period, well worth a visit.

You can follow the map directions provided and walk a short distance to find several old buildings such as this one in the old part of the town. I love seeing this sort of reminder of our History and it looks great.

We were told that this was actually open and so took the walk from the Tudor house. We were told that it was difficult to staff the place, so it opened intermittently but very well worth a view of a restored early house. Have a...More
