The famous Titanic left from Southampton in southern England, and today cruise ships still call here. You can catch the ferry to the Isle of Wight. There are a few kiosks selling food, and a Starbucks. The summer is the best place to go, when you can see the sea, the large cruise ships, and enjoy the sun.
I love the cities that keep at least some of the original walls that surround the city from the Middle Ages. I found a fantastic choice in the south of England that retains approximately 60% of the wall. I found it in Southampton, where I lived for 10 months. And the most important point of this wall is definitely the Bargate, which was the front door to enter the city, and now is the most central point of the city. The Bargate has a small museum on the first floor that goes unnoticed by most people for being very poorly advertised and for being such small building that it appears to have nothing. Do not miss it!
