Southampton is rich in history, with the third longest medieval walls in England, and with more medieval wine vaults than any other town or city. The Romans, Saxons and Normans are all associated with the City, and it has always been the point of departure for English and British Armies. The Docks in Southampton are linked with the great transatlantic liners and modern cruising, but also played a major and important part in the preparations and embarkation for Normandy on D-Day. Jane Austen lived in the City when was a spa resort. One of the most important events was the sailing of the Mayflower and Speedwell in August 1620.

See Southampton is a group of freelance, qualified guides who are committed to promoting the culture, history and heritage of Southampton. We are instantly recognisable in our red jackets, and by our See Southampton badges. We have won awards from Trip Advisor and Tourism South East.
