Saturday, May 15 - Southampton, England - Embark

Southampton is a modern city rich in heritage from its time as a Roman seaport to today’s modern, bustling, vibrant, and cosmopolitan city. The city is home to some of the region’s best concert halls and venues, boasting three outstanding art galleries and two magnificent theatres.

At the northern edge of the city center is Southampton’s cultural quarter with the elegant art deco City Art Gallery, containing 3,500 works of art covering six centuries. Come and discover Southampton’s Old Town, one of the gems of England. This place has played an important part in the country’s history and, for diverse reasons, has attracted the interest of William The Conqueror, Henry V, William Shakespeare, the Pilgrim Fathers, Isaac Watts, and Jane Austen.

Walk in their footsteps seeing buildings that span centuries, be captivated by the spell of very impressive medieval town walls that rival any to be found in England, and wonder at The Bargate, one of the country’s finest medieval town gates. Within a short distance of the Old Town is the waterfront, once of vital importance for the D-Day landings. Solent Sky, with its wonderful display of historic aircraft, is nearby. When night falls, there are traditional and historic pubs, funky bars, and music venues. Just a short trip from the port of Southampton is London, a fascinating city and a sightseer’s dream. City tours visit the major attractions, including Big Ben and Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the Strand.
