The Western Walls & The Vaults 1.30pm

A stroll around the ancient Western walls of the City, and an exploration of the town area inland to the High Street, including at least two of the medieval vaults.

From about 1100, Southampton was a walled city, the walls being finally completed in the 1300s. Starting from the Bargate, we visit sections of the North and West walls, and many parts of the old city, including its oldest Church, St Michael’s.
Our route enables us to include many famous aspects of the city’s varied history.
Places associated with Jane Austen are visited, and the City’s Spa Period from 1750-1830 is described. The Mayflower and Speedwell departed from Southampton. Therefore important locations associated with the Pilgrim Fathers are also visited The City’s important maritime and commercial history is also described as is its role in conflicts from the Battle of Agincourt through to the Normandy Landings on D-Day. This includes a visit to the unique American Wall.

Tours depart the statues of the Lions at the north side of the Bargate, on Saturdays and Sundays at 1.30 pm from 1st October to 31st March.
Cost £6, accompanied children under 16 free.

Ghastly, Grim & Gory

Ghastly, Grim and Gory is a very popular walk and much enjoyed by young people. It deals with accurate historical events that happened in Southampton which link into British history and is therefore educative but at the same time highly amusing and entertaining. This walk is specifically designed for young people between the ages of 8 and 12 years old and is in the style of the much loved "Horrible Histories". The walk starts at 1.30 by the lions at the Bargate and is limited to a maximum of 12 young people and must be booked in advance. The walk lasts for just over an hour and includes visiting a number of locations, including towers and vaults, in the old town of Southampton linked to murder, executions, misdeeds and mishaps. The content is therefore bloodthirsty, scary and lavatorial but is told in an amusing and inoffensive way. Children must be accompanied by an adult for this walk. Cost: £5 per adult with up to two accompanying children free and £5 for each additional child This walk is also available as a private walk and would be a most suitable activity as part of a birthday celebration. The cost for this would be £40 for up to 12 children supervised by four adults. For health and safety as well as supervisory reasons the maximum number of children per adult is three. Unfortunately the vaults and towers as well as the old town walls present access problems for anyone with mobility issues.
