The Western Walls and the Vaults

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
Saturdays and Sundays at 10.30 pm from 1st April to 30th September
Cost £6, accompanied children under 16 free.
