The historic city of Southampton is much more than just a cruise stop or shopping destination. Its appeal lies in its diverse nightlife, exciting retail opportunities, varied leisure facilities, superb art and heritage attractions, lively events programme and of course the excitement and charm of a bustling waterfront location.
The superb Museum of Archaeology at God's House Tower is an ideal place to start your own tour of historical Southampton. Once part of the city's defences the museum is now home to one of the most interesting archaeology collections in England. This can be followed by a guided walk of the city's walls by the Southampton Tourist Guides.
