Attraction Information

Curious About Southampton Southampton gives an exciting glimpse into what makes this amazing maritime city what it is.

Our two unique walks can be enjoyed separately, or joined together to form one longer walk, depending upon available time and energy! They will expand your knowledge, entertain and challenge you, and help you to stay mentally and physically fit! Walks typically take 1 to 2 hours each.

Walk 1: Museum to Bargate

From the 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, with strong defences, 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.

Bargate to Andrews Park
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!

Have fun and stay curious!
