My home for a year

I lived in Southampton for a year between Sep 1999 and Sep 2000, while I did my MA at Southampton University. I lived in halls just off the Avenue, which was very convenient, both for my campus and for the town centre.
I was very lucky, as just over the road was Southampton Common, a lovely park to roam around in, which also contains the Old Cemetery.

Southampton's a really nice place for the visitor as well - plenty of good shopping, lots of historical sites to visit, and easy to relax in. It is absolutely full of parks and green spaces; great for a bit of a sit down before you move on, or a place to lie around and enjoy the sunshine, or even somewhere to take a picnic.
