Nearby 13th century St Bartholomew’s church is worth exploring too. All that remains today is its chancel, which overlooks the farm’s pretty duck pond.

SS Shieldhall

Visitor Attraction
0844 357 2329 0844 357 2329

SS Shieldhall is a heritage steamship based at Berth 48 in Southampton.

“Shieldhall” is unique as a time capsule providing a working example of steamship machinery both above and below deck, typical of the cargo and passenger ships that plied the oceans of the world from the 1870s until the mid 1960s, by which time they were all but extinct.

The ship is of special interest as she is built on the classical lines of a 1920s steamer with a traditional wheelhouse; the hull is of riveted and welded construction and this unusual feature is representative of the transitional phase in British shipbuilding when welding took over from riveted practice. The hull has a slightly raked bow and cruiser stern. The teak decks and emergency steering position aft add to the classic effect. Shieldhall was effectively obsolete mechanically at the time of her launch having steam machinery representative of the late 19th century at a time when the diesel engine was coming into its own.

Now believed to be the largest working steam ship in Northern Europe, she is owned and operated entirely by voluntary effort.

There are live music and lunch events whilst at sea, staged in a Saloon or covered awning-deck. Real ales and ice cream are available too. A commentary is offered on most trips, offering an insight into the history of the Docks, pointing out the ill-fated Titanic Berth 44, and the sights and sounds of Southampton Water. A highlight of your visit will be the chance to discover Shieldhall's Engine and Boiler Rooms under steam, and the opportunity to meet the Captain on the Bridge.  

When not cruising, Shieldhall is an ideal base for events - a popular way to celebrate birthdays and special occasions; company meetings and AGMs.

The colourful, hands-on displays provide a fascinating journey of discovery for all ages, charting Lymington’s development as a market town and port and looking at the smugglers, salt makers and boat builders who have used the Solent shore.

The art galleries host an exclusive programme of exhibitions that regularly include works on loan from national and regional collections.

St. Barbe Museum is an independent organisation governed by Lymington Museum Trust, a registered charity (no.1018779). Since opening in its finished form in 1999, it has acquired a reputation as one of the finest museums and art galleries in the region.

William the Conqueror set aside the Forest for hunting more than 900 years ago as his 'Nova Forestra' or 'New Forest' and centuries of grazing by deer, ponies and cattle have shaped the landscape.

William would probably still recognise much of the Forest as the same place he hunted wild deer and boar. Today it is a wonderful area to explore by walking, cycling and on horseback. Enjoy your visit and please help to keep the New Forest National Park a special place.

Museum
02380 834242 02380 834242

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.

Café

Tudor House Café overlooks the delightful Tudor Knot Garden. It serves a delicious range of refreshments all day, from fresh coffee and biscuits to tea and fabulous cakes. Most of our range is sourced locally, using the finest ingredients. The café is a perfect location for your freshly made lunchtime sandwich, snack or that sweet treat. We offer children’s sized portions and high chairs for younger visitors.

The Café roof is of particular interest, being green … literally. It has a sedum and wildflower roof, which assists insulation and is also enjoyed by the bees. You can enjoy the Tudor House Café without needing to pay for admission to the rest of the building, so give it a try for your next lunch date or business rendezvous. The downstairs Georgian Room overlooking the garden, is available for corporate hire for meetings or training sessions on weekdays (Tues-Fri). Our cafe can also cater for working lunches.

Shop

Tudor House shop is the perfect place to pick up a souvenir of your visit or a special gift for family or friends. We have a lovely range of quality Tudor and Victorian inspired gifts and books as well as lots of interesting and reasonably priced souvenirs and treats suitable for children with a little pocket money to spend. You’ll love our range of tapestry items and ‘pocket’ garden herbs and flowers. You may also be tempted by our delicious range of liqueurs and preserves, or just want to pick up one of our unique postcards so you can write and tell your family and friends what a great time you had at Tudor House.
