Alighting from a cruise, we decided to go on a walk from Ocean Cruise Terminal around Southampton Old Town following the Old Town Wall. Fairly east really. From the terminal, head out to the security gate and then go left. You will soon see the...More

Yes, this does take you through the pedestrianised area of town as that is what has appeared in this part of the city. The point of the QEII mile is that it takes you from the top of town near the SeaCity Museum and the...More

Wondering why this has its own TA entry? It's a route from the top of town to the docks, going through the main street. It walks you through lots of shops & restaurants. It takes you past Bargate and you can glimpse the city walls....More

The QE2 mile is the quickest way to get to and from the top of the centre of Southampton's City from the town quay. It is a street lined with banks, shops, shopping malls, cafe's, hotels, pharmacies etc. and a market (mainly food) on Saturdays....More

Very disappointed as the pedestrian precinct was lined with smelly fast food stalls. The streets of Southampton are dirty and rubbish strewn. Not what we expected at all. The only area worth visiting is the old quarter.

This is obviously the idea that earned a pay rise for someone working for the local authority but putting a red heading on the street signs and setting a few brass plaques into the pavement doesn't make an attraction. There is nothing at all special...More

I have walked there, the area was so quiet and there was nothing to do actually. Only closed shops and hotels on both sides of the road.
