The city of Southampton is located in Hampshire, at the northern tip of Southampton Water which is a mile-wide deep water estuary formed at the end of the last Ice Age, between the confluence of the rivers Test and Itchen. Although Southampton had some Roman and Saxon settlements, the city gained importance as a port after the Normans arrived in 1066 as it served as the main connection to Normandy and the South of France.
Port of Southampton
The Port of Southampton is now a passenger and cargo port. It occupies a sheltered location. as the mouth of the inlet is protected from the effects of foul weather by the mass of the Isle of Wight. The first dock was inaugurated in 1843. The port has been owned and operated by Associated British Ports since 1982, and is the busiest cruise terminal and second largest container port in the UK. It has excellent rail and road links to the rest of Britain which bypass the congestion of London.
The port has see many historical embarkations since the arrival of the Normans.
The port has always been used to embark soldiers. Henry V marched his troops through the Westgate to sail for France and the battle of Agincourt in 1415.
On August 15, 1620 the Mayflower set sail from Southampton, England, for North America. The ship carried Pilgrims from England escaping religious oppression in England. They landed in Plymouth in modern-day Massachusetts where they established the first permanent European settlement. Today over 30 million US citizens are descended from those who sailed there on the Mayflower.
In 1912, the world’s most famous liner, The Titanic, embarked from here on its fateful maiden voyage, carrying seven hundred Southampton residents in her crew, over five hundred of whom would never return.
Southampton was the port where soldiers embarked to fight in World War 1, and in the Normandy Invasions of World War II.
The annual Southampton Boat Show is held in September each year, with over 600 exhibitors present. It runs for just over a week at Mayflower Park on the city’s waterfront, where it has been held since 1968.
City of Southampton
The city of Southampton is home to the longest surviving stretch of medieval walls in England, together with the vaults where the merchants stored their wines. The Bargate in the centre of the High Street was built as the main entrance to the medieval walled town circa 1180 AD. and has been judged as “probably the finest, and certainly the most complex, town gateway in Britain”. It has had many uses over the centuries, including the city’s original Guildhall,where merchants gathered for hundreds of years; during World War II it was used as an air-raid shelter helping the residents survive the bombings.
Southampton is home to a number of museums including the Tudor House Museum; the Southampton Maritime Museum; God’s House Tower which is an archaeology museum about the city’s heritage located in one of the tower walls; the Medieval Merchant’s House; and tThe SeaCity Museum located in the west wing of the civic centre and focusing on Southampton’s trading history and the Titanic.
