Southampton, an important port for nearly two thousand years. Armies have embarked for invasions and foreign troops have landed here for raids on Britain. The Romans had a port here, William the Conqueror used it for ships arriving from Normandy, Richard I left from Southampton to go on his crusades, the French sacked the town in 1338 and Edward III embarked from here to win the Battle of Crécy. More recently, during the First and Second World Wars millions of troops left the port to go into battle. Southampton was also the major port for transatlantic liners like the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary.
Reminders of the medieval town can be seen in the town walls and their towers. Only one section of the wall itself survives, in Western Esplanade. The towers have all survived: Polymond, Catchcold, Wind Whistle and God’s House Tower stood at the four corners of the walls. God’s House Tower, on the Town Quay, is now a museum of local archaeology. Other museums are housed in the 14th century Wool House, a maritime museum, and the Tudor House, a 16th century mansion with overhanging gables, half-timbered walls and mullioned windows standing in St Michael’s Square.
As well as its historic buildings, there are an enormous number of other attractions and things to do in Southampton. There is a lively nightlife with traditional English pubs, lively winebars, clubs and other entertainment venues. These include Leisure World on West Quay Road which has nightclubs, live entertainment, bars, restaurants and a 13 screen Odeon cinema.
