The harbour in Southampton

Southampton is a flourishing port in Hampshire and an excellent place for boat trips.

The Mayflower sailed from here to America in 1620 with the Pilgrim Fathers, and the Titanic left from Southampton on its maiden and tragic voyage in 1912.

I was here in October and even if the weather was mostly overcast, it was pretty mild and nice to walk around.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A nice little town with plenty of nice shopping centres
  • In a nutshell:It's worth spending some time here instead of taking a boat to somewhere else

    Nice photos! We used to take that boat over to the Isle of Wight sometimes.
