Welcome to SOUTHAMPTON
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG

Information about SOUTHAMPTON Southamptonís supremacy as a port dates from Saxon times when the Danish conqueror Canute was proclaimed king here in 1017. Southampton was especially important to the Normans and helped them keep in touch with their homeland. On the Western Esplanade is a memorial tower to the Pilgrims, who set out on their voyage to the New World from Southampton on August 15, 1620. Nowadays, Southampton is England's number-one passenger port and home base for the QE2. In the spring of 1912, the "unsinkable" White Star liner, the 46,000-ton Titanic, sailed from Southampton on its maiden voyage. Shortly before midnight on April 14, while steaming at 22 knots, the great ship collided with an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the icy Atlantic. This glorious and tragic heritage is depicted in the Maritime Museum, where a series of special exhibits on the great liners will help you discover the history of the docks. There is a magnificent docks model built by Southern Railway for the 1939 New York World's fair, and the Titanic Voices exhibition showing the impact of Titanic's fated maiden voyage on the people of Southampton. The museum is housed in the fascinating Wool House, which was built in the 14th century as a warehouse for the wool trade. It has an impressive roof made of Spanish chestnut in which French prisoners carved their names during the Napoleonic war. Naturally, the cityís south facing waterfront is where the main attractions are. Ocean Village and the town quay are bustling with activity and are filled with shops, restaurants, and entertainment possibilities. West Quay Retail Park, part of Southampton's Esplanade development, has become a major hub for shoppers. The central shopping area is pedestrian-only, and tree and shrub-filled planters provide a backdrop for summer flowers and hanging baskets. You can sit and listen to the buskers (street entertainers) or perhaps watch the world parade from one of the nearby restaurants or pavement cafes.
