Curious About Southampton
Explore, Discover & Enjoy Southampton with two unique, quirky heritage walks with a treasure hunt style.
1. Town Quay to Bargate (1.3 miles)
From Dancing Man Brewery (formerly a Maritime Museum) with its stunning views of the Solent, you soon reach Southampton’s city walls, one of the best preserved historical attractions in the UK. Soak up the atmosphere of an important port, dotted with picturesque houses of once wealthy merchants. See a church dating back a millennium, and a gorgeous 15th century Tudor house, before ending at Bargate, a fabulous portal to Southampton’s wealth.
2. Bargate to Park (1 mile)
From the magnificent Bargate, and more of Southampton’s ancient walls, you quickly arrive at the glorious central parks, which give Southampton its unique ‘green’ feel. Past children playing and adults lazing, you arrive at the stunning Civic Centre, before ending your walk back in the parks, amongst stately statues, perfumed flowers, and spectacular shrubs. Time for a picnic perhaps?
