Places to eat & drink in Southampton.

Southampton is a bustling, modern city with a thrilling history and a number of ancient buildings that escaped bomb damage in World War 11. Parts of the city walls have also survived along with several old city gates.

The natural harbour has a double tide which makes it suitable for large ships. Today it plays host to great passenger liners but it was from here that the Titanic sailed in 1912. More than 500 city residents perished when the ship sank.

Earlier, the Pilgrim Fathers set out for America in the Mayflower in 1620 and English armies left here for the Battles of Crecy and Agincourt. In 1016 the Viking King Canute commanded the sea to retreat at Southampton.

The city has a number of museums. The Museum of Archaeology, which is housed in God’s House Tower, has a collection of artefacts which tell the story of Southampton from the Stone Age to the present day and the Solent Sky Museum has a large display of aircraft and aims to educate the visitor on the rich history of aviation in the Solent area.

With its location close to the New Forest and possibly the best shopping on the South coast, Southampton is an excellent base for touring the area.
